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.

      Dry, but not excessively dusty. Lots of crowds on a busy holiday weekend.

      Just on the dry side of ideal. No snow and trail is completely clear from 89 to Stampede. Very very busy right now though.

      Only one snowy spot and some streams to cross. Other than that it’s dry.

       Fun trail. Pretty basic for the most part but has a few areas that require a little bit of skill. Obviously your speed will dictate how much skill you need. We completed the up and back trail in 1 hr 20 minutes but did so on e-bike. Just under 19 miles round trip.
      Completed on a Thursday morning and traffic on trail was light overall.
      Would definitely do again.
