The trail itself is very easy to ride (barring one mandatory walk-a-bike section), but it is cut out of a very steep hillside and the exposure may be too much for new riders.

A Tahoe classic. Quite possibly the best trail views in the entire Tahoe basin. Very busy with hikers and bikers on weekends. Watch the blind...

 World class views, undoubtedly the most scenic trail I've been on. The riding is secondary, and while fun, it is fairly flat. Pair this trail with TRT (from Tahoe Meadows) and/or Chimney Beach trail for an epic day. People with exposure issues may be nervous in a few sections. Visit the great Tunnel Creek CafĂ© at the base of Tunnel Creek Road.
