“A great connector to the new Upper Angora Ridge Trail.”— Chris McNamara
This is a nice and flowy trail that parallels Fallen Leaf Lake Road and offers some great views of Mt. Tallac. It's fast, fun, and flowy as a descent. On the way up (north to south as mapped) it's a pretty mellow climb. It would get four stars if it wasn't right next to the road.
This trail can be used as part of a cool Angora Ridge/Tahoe Mountain Loop: ride this up to the Upper Angora Ridge Trail and then down Mule Deer Connector and back up the Angora Ridge Trail and down the Tahoe Mountain trail to Forest Road 12N19.
