Sugar Pine Point State Park

Ed Z'berg - Sugar Pine Point State Park contains one of the finest remaining natural areas on Lake Tahoe. With nearly two miles of lake frontage, the park has dense forests of pine, fir, aspen and juniper. 

Another attraction is the Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (also known as Pine Lodge), a summer home built in 1903 in a grove of pine and cedar. From the turn of the century until 1965, the lands of what is now Ed Z'berg - Sugar Pine Point State Park were owned by financier Isaias W. Hellman, and later by his daughter Florence Hellman Ehrman. The mansion provides an interesting view into the lifestyles of the wealthy on Lake Tahoe. 

Winter: Winter visitors to the park will find over 20 kilometers of marked cross country ski trails and a heated restroom in the General Creek campground. Interpretive presentations on a variety of winter related subjects are presented most weekends, from January through March.

It was also the site of the 1960 Olympics Nordic events, lots of “firsts” and great nordic skiing trails that are groomed on one of the former Olympic Biathlon Trails, the Red Trail. These trails all start out of the west side or campground side at the Blue trail-head. There is also snowshoeing, hiking and winter camping and an exact 1/4 scale replica of the Tower of Nations from the 8th Winter Games of the 1960 Olympics.
