General Information

Description - Called "the most beautiful drive in America," the 72-mile "Rim of the Lake" drive affords the traveler breathtaking views of spectacularly clear Lake Tahoe. The pristine alpine lake is surrounded by the snow-capped mountains of the Sierras. The Nevada side (Hwy 50 and State Route 28) is mostly undeveloped, except for the fabulous recreational opportunities afforded by the lake. These opportunities include: the Zephyr Cove Resort, stables, campgrounds, the Tahoe Rim Trail, ski resorts, hotels and casinos, and fabulous golf courses. As part of the Pony Express trail and home to the historic sacred grounds of the Washo Indians, Lake Tahoe's East Shore offers a wide variety of activities during every season. The Lake Tahoe Byway is one of the most beautiful winter byways in the country with the draw of an alpine climate and the ever-crystaline lake. Visitors come from miles around year-round to enjoy Lake Tahoe.

Directions from : The byway follows Highway 50 north from Stateline, NV, and intersects with State Route 28. It then continues north to the northeast point of Lake Tahoe just beyond Incline Village.
