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.

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

      Trail was in excellent condition! And being a Saturday, it wasn’t crowded at all!

      “No difficult climbs” is a highly subjective assessment I would strongly dispute. Elevation is a serious factor that no one mentions, and the climbs truly suck. I had to turn back barely 3 miles in, and my boy who has exceptional fitness and stamina completed the ride but called it “soul-crushing.” He doesn’t want to do it again. This is no novice trail, and intermediate is a stretch.

      Very well designed, well maintained trail. Fast and flowy for some classic Sierra singletrack. Watch for wildlife!

      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.
