Connecting the core of South Lake Tahoe up to the Rim Trail this is the latest addition to the South Shore trail system. The trail is built to be ridden both up and down incorporating rest areas and overlooks along the way. It’s a great ride providing some of the best lake views.

 This is a good way to climb up into the TRT system around Heavenly. Grade is gradual enough to keep climbing, and there are a few rocky sections to keep it interesting.
