1. East Shore Bike Trail
A recent addition to Lake Tahoe, the east shore bike trail opened in June of 2019. The 3-mile paved path runs alongside Route 28 and connects Hidden Beach and Sand Harbor State Park. Depending on which directions you're coming from, you can access the path from Tunnel Creek Cafe in Incline Village or the north end of Sand Harbor.
There are numerous little side-trails along the path that lead to the water's edge, which was previously hard to access before the trail was built.
Bikes rentals and parking are available near Tunnel Creek Cafe.
2. Hidden Beach
Hidden Beach is about 1-mile south of Incline Village and can be accessed via the previously mentioned East Shore Bike Trail. This spectacular stretch of shoreline is framed by mountains and features crystal clear water and large boulders that are perfect for lounging on. If you visit on a calm day, you'll be blown away by the brilliantly turquoise the water looks.
Paid parking for Hidden Beach is available along State Route 28 near Tunnel Creek Cafe.
3. Monkey Rock Hike
I've mentioned Monkey Rock in quite a few previous posts, and that's because it's one of my favorite hikes in Lake Tahoe. The hike is relatively short with a big payoff. Once at the top, you'll get to enjoy stunning 180-degree views overlooking North Lake Tahoe and the east shore. And, the monkey-carved rock is fun to see, especially if it's your first time doing the hike.
You can pick up the trail to Monkey Rock behind Tunnel Creek Cafe in Incline Village.

4. Mountain Bike the Flume Trail
This is not something I've done yet, but I wanted to add it to the list. Not only because it looks friggin epic, but also because it's known as one of the countries best biking trails!
Flume Trail Bikes in Incline Village offers a shuttle that drops you and your bike off at Spooner Lake State Park. This is where you start the Flume Trail and ride the 14-miles back to the bike shop at Tunnel Creek Cafe. The trail isn’t rated as difficult, however, there are several steep sections. Flume Trail Bikes advises on their website that if you feel nervous at these steep sections, just get off your bike and walk.
