DIRECTIONS: From South Lake Tahoe: Take Route 50 north and then make a left on Route 28 and as you enter Incline Village, make a right turn on Ponderosa Ranch Rd. and on the far right side of their parking lot is Tunnel Creek Road. Do not park at the top of the road, as employees who live in the area will ask you to move your vehicle down the road, due to privacy and light traffic.
