Description

The Tahoe Mountain Trail provides a fast descent on the north side of Tahoe Mountain. Watch out for any overgrown Whitethorn lining the lower half of the trail that can scratch your arms and legs if you're not paying attention. The lake views from this one are great!

This trail can be used to climb as well for access to descents of Valley View Trail or Lower Angora Ridge Trail. The bottom half is also pretty exposed to the sun, so it can make for a difficult climb mid-day if the sun is blazing.

Some lose silt/rock in some places. Did bottom to top then down. 45 mins up, 10 down. Almost a waste of time for thrills, good for a work out up tho
