5.0 Miles Moderate
The Sierra Buttes Lookout Trail at Tahoe National Forest is a 5 mile out-and-back hike up to views of Upper/Lower Sardine Lakes, the surrounding Sierra Buttes and many miles of Tahoe National Forest.
Just over 1 mile onto the trail, it will split. The Pacific Crest Trail heads right, so you want to stay left and head up the mountain. Just after a mile after the split, this trail meets up with the OHV road - follow this road up the switchbacks to the top of the peak.
