Straddling the borders of California and Nevada, this 725-acre park gets its name from old henry Van Sickle, who had a farm here back in the 1860s. Tourists took notice of it when it became an equestrian stable. Today, most of its attraction is down to the historic barn, a 1917 log cabin and various hiking trails, which lead to the Tahoe Rim Trail, a 165 km long loop through the Sierra Nevada and Carson ranges around Lake Tahoe. From the trail head a 20-30 minute moderate hike will bring you to a delightful waterfall.
