Lake Tahoe is by far one of the most incredible sights in Nevada, if not the entire country. Seeing the lake is an absolute must for all Nevadans. This simple hike takes you to one of the best views of our state's most beloved landmark.
Logan Shoals Vista Point is a popular scenic overlook of Lake Tahoe. This is a must-see destination for all Nevadans. Although the area is fairly well-marked and easily accessible, this incredibly scenic location is a hidden gem. The remoteness of the area makes it a popular place for weddings. It's easy to fall in love with this area's delightful charm.
It's not often that breathtaking views like this one are so attainable. That's part of what makes Logan Shoals such an incredible place.
The 0.1 mile hike to the overlook is simple and short, making it a great place to stop and stretch your legs if you're traveling along Highway 50. Whether you stick around for just a few minutes or hours, you'l be glad you pulled off the highway for this view.
Logan Shoals boasts two magnificent viewing areas of the lake. The trail to the overlook is paved and well-maintained, making it an awesome outing all year long.
Once you reach the overlook, you'll be astounded at the pristine beauty that is Lake Tahoe . The strikingly blue water seems to go on for as long as the eye can see. Mountains and pine trees seem to completely surround you. You'll definitely want to snap a few photos before you leave.
The area even contains a few interpretive signs containing information on the lake and the surrounding area.
Considered North America's largest alpine lake and the second deepest, there's a lot to appreciate about Tahoe. Here you can truly reflect in the glorious natural wonder that is literally right in front of you. It's pretty amazing that one of the world's most epic lakes resides right here in Nevada (even if we do have to share it with California).
You could spend hours traversing all the little nooks and crannies that Logan Shoals has to offer.
Don't be afraid to travel off the beaten path. One of the best views of the lake can be found just off one of the unpaved paths that begin after the paved trail ends. Here you'll find a large rock formation that offers an awe-inspiring panoramic view. This is a photographer's dream shot!
This scenic trail is located just twelve miles from the California-Nevada border. There's a sign marking the area off of Highway 50, and there you will find a small lot with free public parking.
If you're looking for a brief outing that results in a huge payoff, you'll definitely want to add Logan Shoals to your bucket list. It's sure to become one of your new favorite places to take in all of Nevada's idyllic beauty!
