“A nice intermediate loop featuring Page Meadow.”— Nick Wilder
This is a great combination of paved paths, easy dirt roads, and moderately challenging singletrack. It is suitable for intermediate riders, even though part of it is marked "difficult" on the map - that is for the uphill direction, and you'll be going downhill on this ride.
Turn left on Snow Crest Road and climb uphill a while. Before descending, look for a dirt road going off to the left. This is 16N48, which you follow steeply uphill for a while. This first part is rocky, loose, and not very nice, but it's over quickly. It then gently climbs up through dense pine forest with glimpse views of the mountains and Lake Tahoe on much smoother, fast dirt.
After a few miles, you level off and are now in the Page Meadow area, where there are tons of trails. Feel free to explore - they all reconnect eventually, and this area is the highlight of the ride. To follow this route, pass the first left turn option (which leads to Page Meadows) and keep a sharp eye out for another left. It has a "no vehicles" sign but no name. Walk your bike across a short boggy section and you'll soon intersect the Tahoe Rim Trail - Truckee River to Ward Creek.
Turn left and enjoy the spectacular trail through the meadow. Once done, loop around a little more if you like, or if you're ready to return, follow the TRT down a steep singletrack back to the Truckee River, and your car soon after that.
