Overview

Fun, moderate singletrack, and a great intro to South Tahoe riding.

Need to Know

There are easy shuttle options, and often plenty of folks parked to set up a quick one.

Description

From South Lake Tahoe, take Pioneer Trail towards Meyers and turn left onto Oneidas Drive. Take Oneidas as it narrows, and if the gates are closed, park and ride up the road. Otherwise, you can park at a well-established parking lot, or work the shuttle up to the bottom of the Armstrong Connector #18E09A /top of the Corral Trail #18E14.

Assuming you parked at the bottom, ride up the narrow, nicely paved road for 2-3 miles. At the top of the Corral Trail #18E14, continue up the paved road (while you can ride up the Armstrong Connector #18E09A, a nice singletrack climb, it would be best to keep it directional and respect downhill traffic). Then descend the connector, pick up the Corral Trail #18E14, air it out on some of the kickers, enjoy the banked turns, and cruise back to Powerline dirt road. Take a left, and you'll get back to the parking lot in short order. Super fun!

Great day Aug 11, with my young buddies Kyle and Kole from WB PA, Sidewinder and Corral jumps and shuttle Aug 15, 2016
I would not recommend climbing up Connector, at least in the summer. No reason to get in the way of people coming down. The road only has one stout section in the middle (although it's kinda long!). Jun 29, 2017
Climb the road it is not bad or shuttle it. This is one of the best trails in South Lake. It never gets old. Sidewinder is great for just about all ages. Jul 7, 2018
