Loop starting from the Bottom of Lower Angora Ridge trail. The trail connects to Tahoe Mountain via a short road section. Follow map. At top of Valley View Connector look for views of Lake Tahoe. Then descend on Valley View. After that sweet decent you'll climb up to the top of Angora Ridge. Turn left on Angora Ridge Road to the fire lookout for views of Fallen Leaf Lake (optional). Then ride the spine of the ridge on a rocky fun downhill to your parking. More downhill fun than work of going up but enough uphill to give you a good workout. You can design lots of variations of these trails for larger or smaller loops around Angora and Tahoe Mountain.
