SFG Hikes Monkey Rock, Lake Tahoe

SFG went for a hike in Incline Village this June to hike Monkey Rock, Lake Tahoe. SFG team members who went on the hike include Russ, Vicki, and their Saint Bernard puppy, Kona, as well as Jen, and her husband Bruce, William, Tony, and Alyssa, her boyfriend Derek, and their husky Zoey. Taking the morning off to hike and enjoy the great outdoors of Lake Tahoe improved our physical well-being as well as our psychological space. 

Monkey Rock Lake Tahoe

The team hiked to Monkey Rock, Lake Tahoe starting from Tunnel Creek Café. The Tunnel Creek location is a popular starting point for several hiking and mountain biking trails in the Lake Tahoe area. The out-and-back trail to Monkey Rock is a about 2.5 miles in length. The trail winds into the Toiyabe National Forest and offers incredible views of Lake Tahoe. There are two options for the final ascent to Monkey Rock; on this hike, SFG opted for the slightly shorter and much steeper climb. Following the hike, we enjoyed the fresh mountain air with a nutritious lunch from Tunnel Creek Café. 

 

According to Outdoor Project:

“The Monkey Rock hike is a hike that gives you a lot of bang for your buck in terms of epic views following a relatively short hike. Lying about a mile up Tunnel Creek Road inside the boundaries of Spooner Backcountry – Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park and a little farther down a well-worn spur trail are some wide, panoramic views of north Lake Tahoe, as well as the photogenic granite boulder carved out by a local to resemble a monkey. At 2.5 miles roundtrip, the trail isn’t too long, and the hike tends to be a popular one with all age groups, but with a little over 400 feet of elevation gain, expect a slow, steady pace.”
