Trails Near Tahoe

My wife and I are going to be spending our anniversary trip this year up in Tahoe, staying on the Nevada side. I've never been to Tahoe, but I've spent lots of time in and near alpine lakes in British Columbia and Colorado. Are there any must see off-roading trails I could accomplish in a DCLB with stock tires and a mild lift? Nothing more than a few hours long. Thanks!

So, if I ever move up there it seems I'll be the only Tacoma owner?

Uh.....the RUBICON!! If you're talking MUST SEE trails, then that's the one.

K maybe it's a little longer than you want, and maybe a bit more difficult than you want, but still a must see.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. The Rubicon is on my list, but I think I'll have to build a dedicated rig for that.

You can always just drive up the Rubicon for a ways until it gets to rough for your rig! Still some beautiful scenery there!

True. If you go in from the Tahoe side you can get as far as the overlook at the top of Cadillac Hill without too much trouble. From that point you're on your own with how difficult it gets. If you come in from the Loon Lake side, you're into some pretty gnarly stuff right off the bat.

I picked up Roger Mitchell's High Sierra SUV Trails book and found a couple I'd like to try. I would love to take that short stretch of the Rubicon where it is still class III, but I'd never get my wife to agree to that.
