Overview
Skunk Harbor is a 2.15 mile one way hike with 1,000 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 9 miles west-southwest of Carson City Nevada. The trailhead is car accessible. June and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


A beautiful, free, secluded beach on Big Blue, Lake Tahoe. Only dues to pay is the hike. Property used to belong to a rich family from San Francisco. The magnificent beach house still stands at the beach and you can check it out, free. Also check out what's left of an old railroad trestle that supported a railroad that cut through this area from the lumber days pre 1900. Lots of history to dig through on this area.
