Hikes

Monkey Rock is a moderate 2.6 out-and-back trail with beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. You'll start this quick day hike at Tunnel Creek Cafe, which has a nearby paid parking lot and is just a two-minute drive from the condo. The full trail gets quite steep; so, if you're looking for something easy, my favorite thing to do is to stick to the flat portion at the beginning of the trail for about a mile or so. It makes for the ideal no-fuss, easy walk, any day of the week.

The Tahoe East Shore Trail is a beautiful, easy, paved path along Lake Tahoe (great for families!). You can head down this path for miles, popping onto some of the lesser-known, hidden beaches along the way! You can access this trail by walking straight down Country Club Drive towards the water (a beautiful tree-lined walk). When you reach the Lone Eagle Grill, turn left. Follow that street until you reach Tahoe Blvd, where you'll see the paved walking path. Cross the street and follow the path to the right. Alternatively, you can drive to the trailhead and park at the paid Tunnel Creek parking lot.

Folsom Camp Loop is a more challenging 6-mile loop at Diamond Peak Ski Resort that can be done during summer when the resort is closed. You'll love that this hike has great lake views, relatively few people, easy parking, and is less than a 5-minute drive from the condo! Note: the beginning of the trail is VERY steep.

If you're looking for a long hike nearby, Marlette Lake is for you! This is a 13.8-mile out and back hike that starts from the Tunnel Creek trailhead (the same trailhead as Monkey Rock) or you can do it as a through-hike all the way to Spooner Lake (about 12 miles one way) and have someone pick you up from there.

Honestly, every section of the Tahoe Rim Trail is beautiful. If you can, I'd recommend picking one section of this very long trail, doing it as a one-day through-hike, and getting picked up on the other side.

This is easily the most beautiful and elegant restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Located right on the water, the Edgewood is an amazing place to have dinner. You definitely need to make reservations well in advance. I recommend getting there early, grabbing a drink from the bar, and heading out to the beach to watch the sunset. The Edgewood isn't cheap, but it's worth every penny, especially if this is your first visit to the Lake.

Located in the Hyatt, the Lone Eagle Grille is hands-down the most upscale restaurant you'll find in Incline Village. In addition to its beautiful, vaulted-ceiling dining room, you'll have gorgeous views right on the water. My suggestion? Make a reservation at sunset, and take a walk on the beautiful beach just steps away from the dining room.

Bike Rentals

If you're looking for an easy ride around town, Vista Trail Bikes is close to the condo and well-priced. For a great day around Incline Village, I highly recommend grabbing brunch at Sage Leaf or coffee at Starbucks (both are right next door to the rental shop) and then biking the beautiful East Tahoe Shore Trail from there :)
