Alt Names

Tahoe National Forest, Agate Bay, Crystal Bay, Griff Creek, Middle Martis Creek, Lake Tahoe Basin, Mt. Baldy, Martis Peak, Brockway Summit

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

This area offers a few miles of narrow ATV trail loops and a handful of single track to explore. This trail system is small and can be explored in about an hour. Those on street legal machines can find more trails by heading west toward Mt. Watson or southeast toward Genoa and South Camp Peak.

The difficulty level ranges from easy to moderate and most of the trails form short loops. Overall this is a good place for locals or if you happen to be visiting the area.
