This five-day epic gets underway with a shuttle to Lake Tahoe State Park and Spooner Lake. Our first days’ ride ranges through waves of stunning wildflower meadows, gliding into Aspen-covered hills and vibrantly dabbed upslope. From that colorful introduction to The Sierra, we transition straight into a masterpiece: the Flume Trail, critically hailed as one of the premier rides in The West.
The following two days we up the tempo and vary the terrain. Sweeping through the tall forests that cradle Lake Tahoe on fast singletrack, we drop into a host of hidden lakes, ultimately hooking up with the dazzling Tahoe Rim Trail. Yes, you’ve definitely found fat tire Eden.
One day we’re carving Mt. Watson’s tastiest trails, thoroughly enjoying an all-day revel of descents. The next, it’s a more tranquil and meditative half-day out of the saddle, immersing ourselves as John Muir would: with a hike to Tahoe’s shoreline.
Now let’s dive into the details. A number of these signature routes rise above 7,000 feet. Reflexively a peak climb of this caliber requires healthy lungs. Rest assured, the incomparable qualities that define the Tahoe Lost Sierra singletrack, set against stunning Alpine backdrops make the effort all the more rewarding.
