Saxon Creek

Area Status: Open


Mountain Biking

Directions to the trailhead: In South Lake Tahoe take Oneidas Rd. until it turns into FS1201, park at the large paved area with the kiosk. Access: At approximately the halfway point (1 mile) the trail narrows considerably and becomes very technical. Please share trail with Mountain Bikes. Motorized use of the trail ends after 2.5 miles. Attractions and Considerations: Locally know as Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, this out and back ride starts out very wide and is used by ATVs, as well as motorcycles, with some fun, bermed turns. The trail continues to narrow as it pro­gresses up the mountain. A technical ride for the experienced mountain biker, this trail drops from 9,000' to 6,800' in four miles. Be prepared for challenging obstacles that may require dismounting and hike-a-biking. Watch for hikers and equestrian riders on the trail and pass with caution and courtesy.
Difficulty Level: More to Most Difficult
