The climb up from Marlette Lake trail is pretty tough, but relatively short. The decent to the upper Chimney Beach parking area is an amazing finish to what was likely a great ride with amazing views. Several high speed, low risk sections take you down the sandy open trail for some of the most fun downhills in the area. The final chute has a perfect natural double jump in it to give the extra bit of gnar to make you feel like a badass.

Highly advise starting from the Mt. Rose meadows and finishing with this trail. One of the best rides in all of tahoe. At almost 20 miles with almost everything tahoe has to offer.

A fantastic flowy singletrack trail. Not very technical but drops quite a bit in 4 miles. A fast trail. I think there was only one spot I had to...
