Mountain bikers are a special breed of crazy, and Tahoe South’s legendary trails draw these daredevils from far and wide.  Some of them even live here permanently, so your knobby tires will be in good local company.

From the heart-pounding downhill track of the Saxon Creek Trail (nickname: Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride) to the gorgeous Flume Trail there are rides for every technical level. For the truly ambitious, you can link trails and ride seven summits in one day. 

Tahoe South has been designated as a Bike Friendly Community, so bike paths for the social spin are plentiful and so are shops staffed by experts that rent and sell quality bikes The famed loop around Lake Tahoe is 72 miles of scenery: deep blue water, Douglas Fir groves, and breathtaking views of Emerald Bay. The road also passes quaint waterfront lodging and plenty of eateries to fuel the journey. 

The best part about biking in South Lake Tahoe? Plunging your sweaty self into the lake after your ride. Easy beach access means you can go straight from the trails to the water. Trust us, you’ll need a rinse.
