The fun way to get to Strawberry from Sierra-at-Tahoe. Amazing views! Some hike-a-bike required.

Overview

Description

If coming from the East (preferred direction), once you leave the Pony XP trail, you'll climb a few short, spikey climbs until you reach the last section that requires hiking for a short bit to the top. Shortly after the last switchback, it is rideable for the last couple hundred yards to the top.

Up top, make sure to venture over to the edge (to your right/North) for amazing views and photo opportunities. After soaking in the views, get ready for a delicious downhill into Strawberry. Plenty of flowy sections coupled with chunky sections to keep you honest.

Be aware that hikers may be coming up the trail, so don't throw all caution to the wind, although sight lines are generally great on this trail.

Early season there can be trees down, so use caution if you're thinking of hammering down it.

Most people take the road at the bottom all the way down to Hwy 50, but there are a couple short singletrack sections to get you to either Sciots Track bridge or Strawberry.
