Long Description:
In 1931 the State bored a two lane highway through it. It was a climbing rock until a legal decision (which took many years) put it in the hands of the U S Forest Service as a cultural landmark.
Much land along the shores of Lake Tahoe is part of the Tahoe Nevada State Park unit.
As population increased a second parallel, two lane tunnel was constructed about 1958. Today there is a light that must be used whenever bicycles are in the tunnel.
Cave Rock is a day use State Park with a small boat launch facility.
This year many rocks could be seen above the water!
