Mountain Biking Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

Mr. Toads Wild Ride is one of Lake Tahoe's Premier technical rides. This ride is one of my favorites! It is one of the finest downhills in the Lake Tahoe region as well. It is a somewhat difficult one with over 3200' vertical feet of climbing involved, but once you get to the top it is all downhill! The descent from Tucker flat is a technical test piece followed by some fantastic single track riding down the Saxon Creek drainage. The trail combines expansive views, meadows, and forests into one special ride. The downhill is mostly all single track too and very technical in sections. Total riding distance on this ride is a little over 20 miles. You will want to take a full camel bag or two bike bottles.

Toads wild ride starts in South Lake Tahoe, California. The best place to start is at the bottom where it ends.
From highway 50 going south into Myers take a left on Pioneer(Refer to the Map), which is the only stop light in town.
Follow Pioneer for about 3/4 of a mile and take a right on Oneidis. Go through the residential area and look for a turn off on the dirt after you go past the forest service gate.
Now you are at the bottom of Toads Ride. Park here and this is where the ride begins.
