Where Can I Ride my Bike on the TRT?
Mountain bikes can be ridden on just over 50% of the Tahoe Rim Trail. Below is a listing of all segments of the TRT and details on mountain biking opportunities on each segment.
Tahoe City - Brockway Summit:
Mountain biking is permitted on this entire section of trail.
Brockway Summit - Mt. Rose / Tahoe Meadows:
Mountain biking is allowed between Brockway Summit (going east from Highway 267) and the Mt. Rose Wilderness boundary, roughly seven miles in from Brockway Summit. On the other end of the segment, at the Mt. Rose Summit trailhead on Highway 431, a short section of single track leads to a dirt road that runs roughly three miles uphill to Relay Peak and the Mount Rose Wilderness boundary. Mountain biking is NOT permitted in Mt. Rose Wilderness.
Tahoe Meadows - Spooner Summit:
The first nine miles of the TRT from Tahoe Meadows to Tunnel Creek Road are only open to bikes on even numbered days of the month (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc...). It is in the best interest of all trail users to abide by this advisory. All other trails in and around Tahoe Meadows are closed to bikes. The trail from Tunnel Creek to Hobart Road is open to bikes without any restrictions. The remainder of this segment from Hobart Road to Spooner Summit is closed to bikes. Alternate routes to Spooner Summit for bikes are available via Hobart and North Canyon Roads. For more information refer to your map or visit the Flume Trail website.
