MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDES
This trail is a beautiful beginner/intermediate 9 mile challenging single track trail with less 1000 vertical ft of climbing that is close to downtown Truckee. This trail winds its way through the forest and has some great views of the Truckee River canyon and the Sierra Crest ridge. Longer options are available from this trailhead.
Duration: About 1-2 hours
This is a long beginnier/ intermediate 17+ mile single track trail that ends at Boca Reservoir. This is a great cross-country trail that melts out early and a great first Tahoe Mt Bike ride. It can be shortened as it is a rolling out and back ride with a tough climb at the end before the reservoir.
Duration: About 2-3 hours
A local favorite. This is a amazing long ride starting in Truckee and climbing up 2000 vert ft with an epic decent with Donner Lake views and spectacular single track. Not a beginner ride. Warning, this trail is somewhat hidden and is good to have someone who has been there or a GPS track to find the trail entrance.
Duration: 2-3+ hours
