South Lake Tahoe Things to Do: 121 reviews and 246 photos
The drive I mention is not intended for an RV. You could do it, but it would be slow and the mountain slopes would be costly in gasoline. A car or van would be no problem.
Kingsbury Grade is a seasonal mountain pass that has some spectacular vistas. It goes from South Lake over the eastern range down to the Carson Valley. Takes ~1 hour.
From there to Virginia City, again ~1 hour. Virginia City is well worth the stop. Its what many call a "living ghost town" with an old west feel to it.
From Virginia City, you can go out the north side of town, as if you were going to Reno, and continue up NV-431. From Virginia City to Incline Village on the north side of the Lake takes ~1.5 hours.
Traveling between Incline and SLT on the eastern side will be ~45 minutes.
