Sidewinder is well named and features dozens of moderately banked turns which double back on each other creating a ride that feels like something from an amusement park. Bike handling skills will be tested because of the density of turns and proximity of the trees. Many optional rock rollovers and log rides are also featured.

Sidewinder is also a fun trail to ride up, but use caution as downhill riders are often only looking 10 ft ahead of their tire.

This area has a high density of trails for all ability levels and serves as the unofficial hub of mountain bike activity in the South Shore. 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 TAMBA and SBTS built in 2014. The trails all run parallel to the Fountain Place paved road so they can be shuttled by car. Or with only moderate climbing involved these trails can keep almost anyone interested for hours. You can find everyone out here having fun from people in body armor and downhill bikes to families testing their kids limits to xc racer types riding intervals.

Access Info

The upper trailhead is 300 ft into Upper Corral on the right side. The terminus is near the end of Upper Corral.
