Take a hike … around Lake Tahoe

Words and photos by Douglas Etten

ROUND HILL – For those looking for a hike that’s right out the back door, look no farther than the Round Hill area between Stateline and Zephyr Cove.

With trailheads that start from a variety of locations, the most easily located spot to start is right off of Highway 50 across from Roundhill Square Shopping Center and Safeway grocery store. It’s often overlooked because of its proximity to the 45 mph speed zone that sends vehicles cruising right on by, but the views from atop the summit are some of the best of the South Shore and Lake Tahoe also.
