This ride starts at the bottom of Mr. Toads Wild Ride and goes up the west shore of Lake Tahoe over 78 miles and 12000 feet to Tahoe Meadows Trailhead. From here, you ride Rose to Toads back for a full loop. About 140 miles and 20,000 feet of elevation gain. It's recommended to do it over 3 or 4 days. It's fairly easy to "credit card camp" it but you can bikepack as well. There are two ways to make the ride easier: 1) jump on the Incline Flume and avoid climbing all the way to Mt Rose Summit and 2) Go down Stinger and do Powerline etc back to Toads Start. Doing these two options lowers it to about 130 miles and 17000 feet of elevation gain.
