Description

This road is a common connector to the Cedar Flat Trail from 16N74. 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.
