Description

Unfortunately pie is no longer served here, but the name remains attached to this popular South Lake Tahoe area. It offers good climbing and bouldering. Take care to be a good neighbor and not to boulder too close to the houses.

Getting There

To reach The Pie Shop from South Lake Tahoe, follow Hwy 50, west from the junction of 50 and 89 (known as the "Y"). A little past the airport, turn right on Sawmill Road, and continue for 1/4 mile. Park on the left side of the road. The trail starts in the boulders, right of two houses.

I don't think that "leisurely" is misleading at all. It's a simple 10 minute approach. You should have done it before the trail was cut! Jul 9, 2009

Carville's guide calls this a "leisurely" approach. While not long or overly difficult, I think leisurely is a bit misleading. Oct 10, 2007
