DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

This part of the Tahoe National Forest offers miles of narrow and twisty single track trails that winds through a cool mixed pine forest. The trails are marked and range from smooth and fast to rocky, slow and technical, making this a good choice for advanced riders.

Chalk Bluff is the most popular place to stage but parking is limited but there are some basic amenties that consist of a vault toilet, loading ramp and informational kiosk. Additional parking can be found at Omega Staging Area which is about a mile east past Chalk Bluff off Hwy 20.

The trails and staging areas are only open for day use but Skillman Horse and White Cloud campgrounds are located just a few miles west. Note that both campgrounds do not provide direct trail access, so unless street legal, motorcycles will have to be hauled to and from the staging areas.
