Biking in Lake Tahoe
Our Lake Tahoe vacation rental homes are close to world-class mountain biking. Rentals are available around town as well as maps. Bike shops are your best resource. Trails tend to contain lots of rocks, boulders, sand and tree roots, which keeps the courses lively and interesting. Prepare yourself for a tremendous workout. Pack plenty of water, bring a few power bars, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a good helmet. Consider hiring a guide as the best trails are typically a challenge to locate and a local could give you access to some amazing trails without a need to navigate. Bugs are rarely an issue. Mountain bikes are permitted on roughly half the trail, and the entire trail is open to equestrians and skiers. Motorized recreation is prohibited along its entire length. Hikers must obtain permits before entering the very popular Desolation Wilderness area southwest of the lake. Try the Flume Trail!There are hundreds of hiking/mountain biking trails all around the lake. They range in size, length, difficulty, and popularity. One of the most famous of Tahoe's trails is the Tahoe Rim Trail , a 165 mile trail that circumnavigates the lake. Directly to the west of the lake is the Desolation Wilderness which provides great hiking and wilderness camping. One of the most popular trailheads is the Eagle Lake Trailhead, located approximately 30 minutes for our South Tahoe rentals homes.
