Mountain Bike Trails
Enjoy a moderate ride along a ridgeline with scenic views of the Lake Tahoe Basin
to the west and Carson Valley to the east. Several spurs off the main road access peaks,
Genoa Peak being the highest (9,150'). An excellent 10 mile loop off the main ridge is possible.
NOTE: Mountain bikes are not allowed on the Rim Trail, from Highway 207 to Spooner Summit.
From South Lake Tahoe, take Kingsbury Grade (Highway 207) and turn left on North Benjamin Road, which turns into Andria Drive. Continue
to the end of the pavement and park. Take Genoa Peak Road (14N32). A longer trip is possible if you take two cars.
Park the second vehicle off of Highway 50 behind the Nevada Department of Transportation Station (NDOT),
1/4 mile south of the Highway 28 and 50 junction.
Perfect for the biker with limited time, this
short steep ride to the top of a mountain peak has great views
of Lake Tahoe. Open for public use from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
Access is off of Lake Tahoe Boulevard approximately 2 miles from the intersection of Highway 50 and 89.
Brockway Summit to Martis Peak
The Martis Peak Road is a short 5 mile climb well worth the effort.
Drive north on Highway 267 from Kings Beach to Brockway Summit.
Park 1/2 mile past the summit on Forest Service Road 18N02.
Mr.Toad's Wild Ride
A technical ride for the experienced mountain biker, this trail drops from 9,000' to 6,800'
in three miles. Take the Rim Trail from the Big Meadow parking lot 2-1/2 miles to Tucker Flat.
Turn left and follow the drainage of Saxon Creek. In two miles the trail forks again.
The right fork leads to Oneidas Street off of Pioneer Trail. The left fork leads to Highway 89,
south of the Highway 89/50 junction. Watch for hikers and equestrian riders on the trail and pass with caution and courtesy.
