Eagle rock: a lot of bang for a little hike   Leave a comment

By Tim Hauserman




About five miles south of Tahoe City, just off Highway 89, sits Eagle Rock. Located just a stone’s throw from Blackwood Creek at the bottom of Blackwood Canyon folks have been congregating on the top of this rock for hundreds of years for a few simple reasons: it’s sits 200 feet above, yet very close to, Lake Tahoe; provides 360 degree panoramic views of the lake and Blackwood Canyon; and is easily accessible via a trail of less then a half mile. If you have a free hour, you can hike to the top, hang around and take a few photos and head back down with plenty of time to spare.




There are two trails to the top. One on the north side, and a newer trail constructed just to the south of the rock. Find parking along the road, or in a small dirt parking area on the south side. Both trails are well constructed and not very difficult. At the top, wonder around on the large gently sloped volcanic plug. You can catch views up Blackwood Canyon to the Sierra Crest and Twin Peaks, and then walk a bit further and capture incredible vistas of much of Lake Tahoe. The eastern edge of the rock, just above the highway, provides the most stunning lake views.




While this hike can be done quickly, bring a lunch and a good book, and you could have yourself a lovely and peaceful afternoon. Enjoy.

We’re Improving ‘Your Friend In High Places!’   Leave a comment


I hope you are all enjoying your summer.  There is so much to do and see here during our brief but glorious season that we want to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Here on my Lake Tahoe and Truckee Lifestyle blog, I am always trying to improve the site’s usefulness and provide you with timely information.

Toward that end, please note that I have added new sections to the blog:

1) ‘Events Calendar’ page. We can’t always do a feature article on ALL of the current happenings on the main page, especially during the summer, (I’ve got real estate to sell!) but I do want to keep you informed. The new page will be updated as we come across events in the area, so do check the page often.






2) I’ve added a “Categories’ section on the left hand column to help you find specific information on articles we’ve written . For example, say you’re interested in popular hikes in the area. Those would be under the ‘Summer Recreation’ link. Some items will be under multiple categories and hopefully the information is categorized intuitively.  You can also use the ‘Search’ box located right above the categories section.

3)  I’ve also added a ‘Local Services’  area on the left column. These are people or companies I’ve done business with that offer services that you may need.





Real Estate


4) There is also a page for my current real estate listings. The page includes a brief synopsis of each property, with a link to my website which has more in depth information on those properties.

5) Since I am busy selling real estate, I’ve brought in some help on the blog. I’d like to introduce you to Tim Hauserman and Michelle Portesi. Both have been contributing writers to the blog already, but as I couldn’t possibly keep up with my ‘day job’ and write all these articles and calendar events, I’ve asked them to help me keep the blog updated.  Their stories are located below my information on the ‘About’ page.



I hope you will find these changes make for a more pleasurable browsing experience on my blog. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment.
