- Snow on the trails – May 20, 2014
Also, Here’s some more riding options nearby :
* Genoa, NV - There’s about 12 miles of newly built single along with a new connector trail up to the Rim Trail near the Bench. Only a 25 min drive away from South Lake Tahoe. For a map check out the Carson Valley Trails Association, this volunteer group has done an amazing job getting these trails built, support them! MAP HERE
*Reno, NV – Plenty to ride out by Peavine and at the base of Mount Rose (Whites Creek and Thomas Creek).
*Pinenuts, NV – On the east side of the Carson Valley, there’s a ton of trails for dirt bikes, mtn bikes, and horses, get some gps tracks first or you might get lost. It gets hot and dusty out here in the summer, but time it right in the winter, spring or fall and the riding is really fun.
*Auburn, CA – Perennial Favorite for winter riding, about 2 hours’ drive from Tahoe.
*Sly Park, CA – Just off highway 50 near Placerville, there’s some good loops out here. Only about an hour from South Lake Tahoe
*Downieville, CA - A true classic. More info on the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship page.
