Mt. Rose Highway Scenic Viewpoint

A short drive above Incline Village on Nevada Highway 431 is a scenic pull-off with unobstructed views of the Lake Tahoe Basin, spectacular day or night. The road from here heads north to Reno, with a winding descent and expansive views.

Old Highway 40

This route parallels Interstate 80 on the path taken by pioneers and the Trans Continental railroad over the Sierra Nevada Range. The highway curves up between steep cliffs to a scenic bridge and views over Donner Lake. Near the top of the pass are the original, now-abandoned train tunnels and “Chinese wall” constructed in the 1860s. At press time, another Tahoe favorite, D.L. Bliss State Park, anticipated closures this summer due to installation of a new water supply system. 18 SUMMER/FALL 2022 | Lake Tahoe Visitor Guide
