“on the remote eastern shore of Lake Tahoe”

Secret Cove is one of a series of beaches located along Highway 28 on the remote east shore of Lake Tahoe. Also to be found in the vicinity are Sand Harbor, Chimney Beach, Boaters Beach, Creek Beach and Whale Beach. Each location is different and offers something unique depending on what you wish to have for a day on the beach located about another 3/4 mi. farther south of Chimney Beach. Unfortunately for this beach and those remaining to be discussed, parking is a real problem. Access is gained only by parking at either of the above-mentioned lots and then walking the 3/4 of a mile south down a fire access road that starts at a locked gate at the restrooms OR by parking further south on Hwy 28 past the "NO PARKING" signs and then walking back north until you get to the signs marking the trails down the hill. All of the trails end up being fairly steep and should only be tried by those in fairly decent physical condition. Going down is easy, but remember... you have to walk back UP to get out of there. The trails have been improved by the U.S. Forrest Service to include steps and boundaries. PLEASE stay on the trails because erosion is a major concern here. Everything flows downhill and ends up in the lake and nobody wants that!There are two nice restrooms located near where the trails cross the access road just above the Cove. There are also trash containers provided to make it easy to dump your trash on the way out. Finally, there is an information signboard advising of the basic rules which include "No Camping", "No Glass Containers", "No Fires" and that "Nudes May Be Present In This Area".
