Upper Corral is a rough rocky trail with tight banked turns and many optional jumps and drops.

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

Upper Corral is primarily accessed from the paved parking area at the 2 mile marker up Fountain Place Rd (which is the continuation of Oneidas St.). 300 ft from the upper trailhead Sidewinder takes off to the right. The terminus off Upper Corral is at the bridge and creek crossing where Lower Corral picks up.
