It was an easy 10-15 minutes hike from parking lot once you found it but there were no markers or trail signs, explanations etc. Its supposed to be an extinct volcano but no real information stating so along the hike. Wouldn't recommend find a different park to hike.

Short steep hike up from the parking area (in a neighborhood "Cave Rock Trail Head" on WAZE - not Cave Rock Beach) - the last part is a scramble up the back side of the rock that is above the tunnel! There is no set way to go and coming down was difficult for me (I sat in 4 spots to descend - but I am 63!) Wear boots and bring a pole if you have one. Much younger people turned around before reaching the top because of flip flops for shoes. I'm so glad I did this!!

Because of good weather with no snow, we've decided to climb there. The reward was great as the view great was.
It must be great spot for sunsets. The whole rock and short trial connecting this spot with very small parking spot is colorful and the view is great all the time.
For short climbing you should have good shoes. Be careful with parking the car. I've heard about towing cars parked in wrong spots.
I recommend this attraction. Don't forget the camera or phone.

We went to the nice park with scenic views of Lake Tahoe. This time we were there on Labor Day. Cave Rock is very pretty.

Beautiful views of sunset. Short hike to the rock and fairly easy climb to the top of the rock.

One of the best sunset views giving a glimpse of the whole lake.
