Under the radar spot in Tahoe. This ride has a little bit of everything you want, jumps, logs, obstacles, etc.Relatively uncrowded, especially during the week.

The Yogi trail starts just south of Truckee, off highway 89. From the trailhead you climb up dirt roads and single track to the summit. From here you connect a series of unmarked singletrack trails. Because this area is frequented by motos, most of these stellar trails start about 10-20 ft from the jeep road. It’s an unfortunate necessity as it only takes a few motos going down these trails to ruin them. I recommend downloading the route onto your GPS device, so that you can easily find your way. Or if you prefer more assistance you can contact a local bike shop like the Back Country store, which offers guided trips in the area. They also offer free guided trips most Thursday evenings from the shop. Once you start descending you’ll encounter an assortment of terrain features like table tops, gap jumps, logs, etc. Most of these can be avoided if you’re uncomfortable doing them but keep your speed in check to do so.
