Lake Tahoe is an expansive region that includes the towns of South Lake Tahoe, CA; Incline Village, NV; and Tahoe City, CA; which dot the shores of the largest alpine lake in North America, and one of the clearest lakes in the world. This entire region is renowned for its mountain biking and is stitched together into a cohesive destination by the Tahoe Rim Trail.

While Tahoe has long been known as a mountain bike destination, ongoing trail developments, primarily around South Lake Tahoe, have really pushed the region over the top into a truly world-class riding destination. There’s more trail riding than you can shake a stick at, and even if downhilling is your thang, Northstar Resort has you covered.

The restaurants and bike shops in Tahoe never seem to end, and you can find at least six breweries in the region.

Must-ride trails include the Tahoe Rim Trail, Flume Trail, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

      Yeah, Green Mountain Trails in Pittsfield is awesome!

    I’m sure they’re all great, but I feel like the midwest and east coast are left out a lot.

    Don’t know the the “Ten Best”, but I’d sure be happy to ride that list!

    The Midwest and East do have great places, but sorry folks, nothing beats the West.

    Santa Cruz? Who forgot this little gem. The Kern River Valley? Another nugget
