Stairs to Commons Beach in Tahoe City at Lake Tahoe

It would be easy to pass through Tahoe City and miss this beach, as it is not visible from Hwy 28. There is limited parking available on Commons Beach Road that dead ends at the beach area. If that lot is full, then you need to park in the downtown area, and there are several places where there are stairs that go down to the beach area.

Tahoe City Lakeside Trail in Tahoe City at Lake Tahoe

You can also get to the beach from the Tahoe City Lakeside Trail, which parallels the shoreline and goes down past the Tahoe City Marina, the Boatworks Mall, the Lighthouse Center, and the Tahoe State Recreation area. You can walk, or bike to the beach area from any of these areas. This is a beautiful walk or bike ride with views of the Lake. Last time I was on it, there were beautiful wildflowers along the way. (see my Flora page)
