Start your ride at the Tahoe Rim Trail trailhead at Spooner Summit. Shuttles are available from several companies in South Lake Tahoe. Bathrooms at the trailhead.
Continue south on the Tahoe Rim Trail until you hit Van Sickle, then descend Van Sickle.
There are a couple creek crossings along the trail where you can filter water and refill, but that water always depends on seasonal snowfall, so use caution.
