    I've seen that lots of people here and on other websites have visited White Rock Lake in Tahoe NF. I see plenty of pictures of people at the lake, but I haven't really found any pictures or descriptions of the trail to the lake, people just say that it gets harder towards the end. Does anybody have info?

    I have a 2nd gen DCLB 4x4, 100% stock (with the exception of the anti-tailgate theft mod...) and I'm wondering if I will risk rocker panel damage or excessive brush scraping here. With less than 2K miles, I'm not ready to abuse it yet...

    Any info would be great. Thanks.

    I've camped there before back in 2008 or so. Memory is getting sort of fuzzy on it, but this is what I recall. If camping at the end where you come in by the dam, my highlander could make it. It's just a forest road. To continue to the campsites along the lake, you don't need 4wd, just a little clearance because there's a boulder in a somewhat narrow spot (IIRC) to go over. A Subaru Outback can pass that spot. Once past, it's a forest road level of difficulty again.

    Most older trail notes combine this with Mt Lola trail. That was a seriously steep, rough trail at the very back of the lake that is no longer open after the last major accident occurred (friend of mine was with that group and it required life flight to be brought in. Trail has been closed since.

    Thanks guys! So it sounds like pretty much any decent-clearance vehicle will be fine, as long as you don't want to drive on the rock.
