A frequently used trail best suited for cross-country bikes. There are no difficult climbs or technical downhills. Mostly flowy single-track. It's easy to connect to trails in Tahoe Donner for a ~30 mile out and back. There is water available in the campgrounds around Stampede Reservoir during summer months.

      Powdery in the turns, but not overly loose. Stampede is much higher and cleaner than in previous seasons.

      All clear, small creek crossing but all else is dry. Flowers in full bloom.

      99% clear of snow. A couple wet areas where adjacent snow runs down the trail, a hand full of easy snow crossings, and a few easy creek crossing...

      Great ride. Good flow with good ups and downs. Rocks in places to keep you on your toes.
