Burton Creek State Park is located on the outskirts of Tahoe City. Six miles of unpaved roadway are available for hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing. The terrain is mountainous and uneven and explores the south facing slopes of the north shore of the Tahoe Basin. There is a variety of conifers and shrubs, and opportunities for wildlife and bird watching. Spring time offers many wildflowers to see, and in the fall the cottonwoods change color. In the winter, the trails are open for cross-country skiing. Water, restrooms, and other services are not available. Motorized vehicles are not allowed in the park. Access is from North Lake Boulevard, also known as State Highway 28, the easiest entrance behind the Tamarack Lodge. Open Sunrise to Sunset.
