Mountain Biking Daggett Loop

****   Add a review
#26 of 106 mountain bike trails in Nevada
#4,557 in the world

From a technical stand point, Daggett Loop is an intermediate trail. Aerobically speaking, it's intermediate when riding from the north end, but more advanced if riding from the south end. Starting at the north end, you will climb 620 in the first half mile, then descend 1220 feet for the remaining 3 miles. Conversely, starting at the south end, it's a steady 1200 foot climb for 3 miles reaching 8100'. Bring an extra lung if you're not used to the elevation. Daggett Loop is a typical example of a South Tahoe trail, with the usual fixed rocks and boulders, as well as decomposed granite surface. No significant technical challenges other than some rocks here and there, depending on the line you pick. The trail can have a few sand traps if it's been dry for a while. Climbing will probably be most rider's challenge, especially when riding south to north. The trail affords some views down into the Carson Valley.

    Rode Dagget Loop as a part of doing a bigger route from Kingsbury down to South Lake Tahoe. It's a typical South Tahoe are trail with plenty of fixed rock and boulders. Well maintained trail with nice scenery. Rode the day after Labor Day, and didn't see a single other rider or hiker. Due to the route we planned, we rode Daggett Loop from the south end, which means it's a 1200 ' climb for 3 miles starting as soon as you hit the trail. We didn't warm up, so, yeah, it woke us lowlanders up. Starting from the south, you're at around 7200'. I suspect most ride from the north end, as that would provide a 1200' descend after a milder 600' half mile climb. Really nothing too challenging, but a nice trail. Watch for sand traps when things have been dry, especially the end of summer.
