The fairly level paved trail wanders from CA267 to the North Tahoe Regional Park through an amazing grove of old growth trees -- some of the largest Incense Cedar and Jeffrey Pine -- each hundreds of years old.  At the end of the trail is the regional park with loads of activities -- ropes course, disc golf, fitness trail, nature interpretive trail, children's playground .

Type: ​Out-and-Back or Shuttle

Trailhead: Go up CA267 in Kings Beach, turn left on Pinedrop, go to end of street where there are several pull-in spaces

Trail: Easy paved trail with just a few dips.  Follow the trail to the regional park where you can participate in a wide range of activities.  There are many side trails (see map on left) if you wish to lengthed your trip.

Distance: 1.0 mile one way

Change in Elevation: ​  80'

Hints: Instead of just an out-and-back, make it a shuttle by parking up on Regency, walking down the Forest Service road by the watertank -- play a few sets of tennis or do the ropes course, then hike out to Pinedrop. 

Flowers: Not much -- very wooded

Trees: Jeffery Pine, Incense Cedar & White Fir
