Mountain Biking

Mountain biking in forest can be anything from a challenging ride on the Tahoe Rim Trail to a leisurely ride along backcountry roads. This high alpine environment can be unforgiving to the unprepared. Riders should carry water, food, clothing and tools and be prepared for changing weather, riding conditions and accidents. Most trails travel through remote areas where help is not readily available.

Popular mountain bike routes include the Tahoe Rim Trail, Corral, Saxon Creek, Tyrolian, Star Lake, Stanford Rock, Monument Trail, Van Sickle, Power Line Trail, Sidewinder, Armstrong ...
