This is a very fun, high banked moto trail that is appropriate for all rider levels depending on how fast it is taken. It's also a continuation of the Powerline Trail and provides access to Powerline Road and subsequently to the Corral network of trails. This trail becomes very sandy and loose in summer, so riding up is usually frustrating.

Access Info

Look for the prominent forest service trailhead sign approximately a quarter mile up the High Meadow forest access road. The lower end of this trail morphs into the Powerline Road.

       That's the wrong video for this trail - wrong part of California. That video is not S. Lake Tahoe.
