This is a very well developed trail that is mostly paved and easy to hike for just about anyone. The views from the trail are amazing! Access to the trail is direct from the overlook parking area, but the parking is limited at the overlook and there is a 20 minute limit on parking. Accessing the trail is possible from the roadside, too. So, you will see multiple cars parked along the road in the area where parking is allowed. Restrooms are available at the overlook site.
The Tahoe East Shore Trail is a nice paved trail perfect for walking or biking. The trail is about 2.5 miles long one way from the start of Incline Village to Sand Harbor State Park and offers great views of Lake Tahoe. Well worth spending an hour or two walking or hiking if in the North East shore of the lake. Overall a fairly popular paved trail and easy to walk or bike
Great walkway, right by the lake. It runs for several miles and pathways also go down to the lake as well. The one thing that is a major challenge is parking, especially during the summer months. There is a tourist viewing area with parking for 20 cars and a 20 minute time limit but it's either hit or miss. I would suggest parking north at the paid parking center and making the walk, there are pathways that start there as well on the other end of the walkway for the lake shore view.
One of the best trails in the world in my book. I have a bad hip and the easy up and downs the trail has is easy enough for me. Very wide paths allows families to walk besides each other even with others approaching. The views simply cannot be beat. The best parking is at Sand Harbor which costs $15 out of state or $10 for Nevada residents. Up to the north just inside incline village it's by the hour parking but that part of the hike has a big hill which can be a little more work for some. Overall a great place to hike with views that cannot be beat.
