Agreed. Emigrant trail is the best beginner trail I think I've ridden. No extended ups or downs. Line of site is pretty good too. If you're a good rider it's still fun. There are some sections you can jam through. It's up North by Truckee, so it's a drive, but it's worth it.Got rocks? said:Emigrant Trail is a good & fun ride for beginners. It's not too easy/boring (i.e. no fireroads of flat gravel). It's a long trail of rocky-enough single- & double-track to keep you interested & challenged enough to practice some tech. skills & not really any steep climbs/descents, just rolling.
I liked that trail much.
Nice. My wife and I are headed to Tahoe tomorrow and are taking our bikes. I'll take her theresheclimbs said:The singletrack that goes up from the camp ground at Sugar Pine (?) state park on the SW side of the lake is a great place to take a beginner. You just climb up as far as you're comfortable riding.
