TRT: Tahoe Meadows to Tunnel Creek Rd.

The Tahoe Meadows to Tunnel Creek TRT is made up of a high percent DG (decomposed granite), thus it drys out quickly. If you ride this east side of the TRT, then conditions seem pretty normal for mid July - dry. Still awesome views, and plenty of little granite challenges to make the 8.4 miles feel longer than it is. My riding bud the other day had one of his best days riding it, so I'd agree, plenty of fun to be had ...
