This road is a common connector to the Cedar Flat Trail
. It's just a basic Forest Road, but a relatively easy climb to Cedar Flat Trail
. This is mostly just a connector as part of larger rides.
At the top, 16N49 crosses both the Tahoe Rim Trail - Brockway Summit to Tahoe City
and The Grinder
. There are some nice meadows at the top, but from a MTB perspective it would be way more fun to stick to the singletrack radness of the Tahoe Rim Trail - Brockway Summit to Tahoe City
or The Grinder
From the bottom 16N49 is almost always used to get to the Cedar Flat Trail
. Beyond this intersection, the road turns uphill sharply and becomes loose and steep until it crosses Watson Creek near the Fiberboard Freeway.
