With a slew of berms, rollers, hips, and table top jumps, Lower Corral Trail has been a signature project built by TAMBA in partnership with the Forest Service since 2014. The first build was in 2014 with subsequent builds in 2015 and 2017. Out here you will find the most legal features including log rides, jumps and rock rolls in South Tahoe including the new jumps, berms, rollers and hips. Please donate if you want to see more

This is a motorized trail, so you might see dirt bikes and ebike out here. But the trail is primary downhill, uphill travel is not recommended. Ride up Cedar or the paved Fountain Place Road to loop it.

      Great shape, even the turn after the jump lines was good, for a few hours after a rain.

      Very dusty and sandy as of 7/24. Berms and jumps were a little sketchy but still rideable

      Pretty blown out in the corners but still fun. Try to hold speed and stay high through the turns.

       burms are pretty blown out, you gotta work to find the sweet spot to keep your flow and clear jumps even more so now with loose sand and brake bumps. still alot of fun to be had.

       So much fun!! Great berms and big table tops. Takes a little extra to clear the jumps and maintain the flow but still 10/10.

       Best to ride before it gets to dry. The jumps are table tops and are really fun to go for it. Love the speed you can get on this trail and I love the berms.

       FYI the gate is closed so no more shuttling.

       My favorite place to eat dirt and ride some moderate downhill. Jumps in lower portion.

       Pedal up the road, not the trail. Just because it's not "against the rules" doesn't mean it's not a terrible idea. This is a popular area and riding up a fast downhill-primary section like this is very dangerous for you and others. Have fun!

       Rode this with my 3 kids and it was so much fun. We connected to it via the Sidewinder trail and it was a really nice ride. Well recommended and a good shuttle option.

       How late in the year is the shuttle run open? Does it get closed due to weather? I want to hit these jumps before it’s too late!

       The road may be gated before the first major snowfall, but you can always pedal up the road.

       I don’t recommend climbing. Very sandy, and designed for downhill. Should be marked directional.
