Valley View is the only trail to survive the 2007 Angora Fire, although the lowest section was rerouted in 2017. It has awesome views of Mount Tallac, Echo and the Crystal Range while traversing through the open burn area. The lower section was rebuilt by TAMBA volunteers in 2017 after erosion took out the old trail. It was two long log rides at the bottom and is steep and twisty at the top. Best to ride as a downhill.

Access Info

Picks up from Deveron Connector 50 ft west of the upper section of Valley View Trail and terminates on the Tahoe Mountain Trail.

      Ideal. The recent precipitation made it the least sandy you're ever going to see it.

      It's okay as an uphill, just some steep sections. Nothing too technical.
