Hero: Fordyce Lake Road
small-sr Icon
Fordyce Lake Road / Rattlesnake Road is an easy and scenic trail best know as an alternate entrance/exit to the iconic rock crawling trail: Fordyce Creek / Fordyce Jeep Trail. Fordyce Lake Road sits in the Tahoe National Forest and connects from the Cisco Grove area to Fordyce Lake, just short of the dam, which is gated. This is a great trail for just about anyone. While rock crawlers might use it as a shortcut into or out of the harder trail, overlanders and new wheelers can enjoy the scenery and camping along this trail.
