Mountain Biking

 

The Tahoe National Forest is a mountain biking paradise.  Many of the Forest's best mountain biking routes are on roads and trails that are rough and un-maintained. Always wear your helmet and gloves, and for safety, ride with a buddy. Carry basic tools—wrenches, screwdriver, chain breaker, pump, patch kit and spare tube.

Bikes are not permitted within any designated wilderness area or on the Pacific Crest Trail.
