Powerline Trail Details
Smooth rolling single track takes you from town near Heavenly Cal Base up and along the forest above the neighborhoods of South Lake Tahoe. Easily accessible from many points in town. Very suitable for beginners to intermediates — and everyone can use it to connect to other trails, such as Cold Creek, and Corral and Incense Cedar (via the Moto Trail). West of High Meadow Road this trail ostensibly continues as the Moto Trail which morphs into Powerline Road that connects to Fountain Place Road and the Corral area.
Head to the top of Ski Run Blvd and take a right onto Saddle Road, this dead ends after about a block where the trail begins. There is limited on-street parking immediately adjacent to the trailhead. However there is generally plenty of parking at the other end of the trail. To access, drive up High Meadows Road off Pioneer Trail. Park on the pavement at the end of the road or continue another mile up the forest access road to the terminal parking lot. The trail starts north out of the parking area.

|reporter Clear, some water crossings and mud to be on the lookout for. The bridge past Al Tahoe Blvd will likely be washed out soon from snowmelt|
