Technical and rocky trail. There are no super steep sections; the steepest part is right at the end as you come into Tahoe City.

Access Info

Great as a loop starting at Tahoe XC and going up the newly built Lakeview ridge trail to the TRT then riding the TRT all the way to Tahoe city. Can also ride the TRT from Brockway all the way to Tahoe city.

A little dry, but the recent rain showers have improved the rolling surface.

 Glass Mountain was a perfect match for what I like. A really rocky downhill with great scenery and just a fun trail to ride. It is challenging so not recommended for a beginner rider but great for an experienced mountain biker that loves to go out and adventure.
