      There is a wide variety of terrain just outside the door, from gentle meadow cruising, to challenging uphills, and fun descents. The Tahoe Rim Trail is just 5 miles from the trailhead, and is a beautiful ride or hike that can take you back to Tahoe City. Access Northstar Resort via the Fiberboard Freeway, or do a fun gentle 5 mile loop that suits all ability levels.
