Some brave souls bike this trail, I hiked it one-way, with a car shuttle with a friend. There are outfitters who shuttle bikers, and I imagine they would shuttle hikers as well. The trail clings to the side of steep drop-off in some places which...More

I rode this with my 13 year old son and we had a great time. We went swimming in the lake half way and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. A must do.

Spectacular views of Lake Tahoe along the single track section of the route, but not for people who are afraid of heights. Wide trail for the climb up and descent.
