Eagle Rock volcanic outcrop at elevation 6,286' rises up from Highway 89 in Tahoe Pines, between mile marker 67 and 68. A moderate 20 minute hike leads to an amazing panoramic view of Lake Tahoe. Early photos from the Tahoe Tattler newspaper document recreational use by area "residents" as early as 1881! Park on the west side of the road on the south end of the rock. The new trail, located away from the creek, winds up the side of the rock.
