Sugar Pine Point Light - August, 1997
The Sugar Pine Point Light - actually only a beacon sitting on a steel mast - can be found in the Sugar Pine Point State Park on Lake Tahoe.
The lighthouse was built in 1919 when the Rubicon Point Lighthouse was discontinued after only three years operation. Park officials advised me that a lighthouse did exist at this location until 1985, when it was replaced by the structure seen here after being damaged in a storm.
The lighthouse trail is well marked, and the park staff were very friendly and helpful.
