South of Lake Tahoe you'll find the many joys of Highway 88. High among these is Stevens Peak. In both winter and summer it is an easy peak to access, though further from the road than Red Lake Peak. The views from the peak are spectacular, as are the views from all the peaks within view of Lake Tahoe. It is the rock formations that set this area apart however. If you approach from Big Meadow you'll first notice this in the cliffs above Round Lake. From the peak you can't see those but you can see many more. The easiest routes to the peak are
1. From straight off Highway 88 in the middle of Hope Valley, west of Blue Lakes Road (there is a pullout on both sides of the road here). or
2. Leave 1 car at the above spot and shuttle to the top of Carson Pass (Meiss Meadow Lot). Hike in past Red Lake Peak and enjoy.
If you park at Carson Pass you must have a Sno Park Permit, which can be purchased at the Roadrunner or Chevron on the way out of Lake Tahoe in Meyers. If you're coming from the west, Kirkwood usually has a supply, but try to get one beforehand because if they are out you're hosed.
