Mountain Biking is Open for the Season
Spring has sprung! Due to the early decline in snow cover this winter, most trails are snow-free earlier than usual. Mountain bikers are enjoying this early season, getting bikes tuned up and tackling trail maintenance. Although the majority of trails around Lake Tahoe are clear, snow patches still remain in spots, so be prepared before you head out. Learn what to expect by reading updated trail reports.* Remember, if you come upon a fallen tree or snow patch be sure to stay on the trail in order to maintain the integrity of the trail.
Mountain biking is an incredible way to explore the landscape. Last weekend I was pleased to find the Emigrant trail in great condition with wild shrubs and flowers blooming! As we closed in on the Stampede Reservoir the trail became increasingly narrow with obstructed views-tons of fun to ride but potentially dangerous for two way traffic. We had to stay alert and make sure that others knew we were on the trail, yielding to riders coming up hill.
If you don't have the equipment for a mountain biking adventure or you are looking for a knowledgeable guide to introduce you to the area, check out our Mountain Biking offerings here
Feel free to give us a call, too, at 530-913-9212.
