This area has a high density of trails for all ability levels and serves as the unofficial hub of mountain bike activity in the South Shore. Out here you will find the most legal features including log rides, jumps and rock rolls in South Tahoe including the new jumps, berms, rollers and hips TAMBA and SBTS built in 2014. The trails all run parallel to the Fountain Place paved road so they can be shuttled by car. Or with only moderate climbing involved these trails can keep almost anyone interested for hours. You can find everyone out here having fun from people in body armor and downhill bikes to families testing their kids limits to xc racer types riding intervals.

Rideable about 2/3rds the way up before the snow pack is too heavy.

 This makes a run on Corral twice as long. the trail definitely has some very fun sections with some risk/reward choices on it. Problem is, its on an exposed southwest facing slope and gets extremely sandy and blown out almost instantly. For best conditions hit it immediately after a rain.
