Emerging as one of the nation’s premier mountain biking destinations, South Lake Tahoe is home to numerous mountain bike trails, from flat scenic paths to hair-raising downhills. The Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association (TAMBA) website is a great resource for trail info, including maps, trail conditions, and events.
Roll through the foothills through diverse woodlands. The Sly Park rides are a hidden gem in this area. Enjoy some fun climbs with rewarding downhills on the 6.5-mile loop south of the lake or take the loop around the lake with a flat, double-wide trail suited for beginner and intermediate riders. The Mother Lode Trail Stewardship is a new trail advocacy organization representing El Dorado County.
