An easy shuttle trail up Tahoe Mountain Road.

Grant Lewis

Overview

Open all year from Tahoe Mountain Road. Fallen Leaf Road is closed in winter.
Dogs: Off-leash

Description

Park at the top of Tahoe Mountain on Deveron Way, and the trail starts to the right by the sign posted clearing between the giant houses. Climb for ~10 Minutes on tight switchbacks to a Y. From here the views of Meyers, Freel Peak, and Christmas Valley are amazing - don't miss them.

After you'd had your fill of views, take the lower trail and start the descent. The first obstacle is a large rock roll-over with a ride around option. Banked turns continue the fun as they lead down through an old section of burned trees from the Angora Fire.

Be aware, there are three main rock gardens you travel through, but each is short lived (15-20 feet). There is a banked turn that goes through a creek bed that has some loose sand in it (go easy)! The bottom section is full of fun, fast turns that flow excellently.

This trail does very well after rain, but be sure to ride early morning for a Sunrise cruise. Ride and enjoy Tahoe Mountain!
