Are you looking to discover some amazing mountain bike trails in Lake Tahoe? I've compiled a list of three of the best in the region.

1. Flume Trail: This is one of the most scenic trails in the world! The trail overlooks cliffs that plummet into the pristine blue waters of lake Tahoe. If you want to have great outlooks while you ride, this trail is definitely for you! It's a steep climb in the beginning but it's definitely worth it. Most of the trail is singletrack.

2. Kingsbury grade to bench overlook: This trail is a great technical, singletrack ride. There are numerous boulders scattered over the trail in places and it gives you the opportunity to improve your technical mountain bike skills. When you get to the bench at the top of the summit, you have an amazing view of the entire lake Tahoe basis. Overall there are a lot of ups and downs on this trail but the climbs are not very grueling.

3. Mr. Toads Wild Ride: You will find the start of this gem at the top of Luther pass. The trail begins with a singletrack climb, but then it turns into some of the most fun singletrack terrain of your life. Be wary, though. It can be quite technical at some points and there are plenty of opportunities for you to go over the handlebars.

These are my favorites in the Tahoe Basin. If you're looking for a more detailed description of any of these, go into any local bike shop. I'm sure they will be more than happy to give you info.
