Hero: Strawberry Pass / Strawberry 4WD Trail
small-aa Icon
Just south of Lake Tahoe and not far off Highway 50 in the Eldorado National Forest is Strawberry Pass, a scenic off-road trail climbing its way up and over Little Round Top Mountain. The trail overlooks Caples Lake and the Kirkwood Ski resort. This long 4WD trail is known for its high mountain views and some great dispersed camping locations. Strawberry Pass is a key part of a popular route connecting Deer Valley and the Rubicon Trail or Barrett Lake with minimal pavement.
