May 22, 2023: The weather has made a turn for the better and the heat has been turning up here in North Tahoe & Truckee. High alpine terrain and trails will need a few more weeks to melt out, but we've got a nice mix of trails that are currently open to ride! Read below for a few suggestions and check back for updates.


  • Lloyd's is up and running and 100%+ snow free. It's a short 3 mile loop but a decent option close to town and a great way to get the legs and lungs back in shape. Two laps and then a beer by the water's edge at Prosser? Yes, that'll do for now until more becomes ridable. (map)

  • Emigrant Trail is mostly free of snow and offers up another alternative with more mileage and mellower terrain for beginner and intermediate riders. There are a few water crossings to navigate at this time. (map)

  • A1 / Donkey Town (formerly Jackass trail) have had some trail work completed recetnly by the Truckee Dirt Union so now's the time to enjoy Truckee's worst kept secret. (map)

  • Sawtooth Trail network has a variety of trails and rooutes to explore but the upper portions (Happy Face) still need time to dry out. Lower Sawtooth is good to go. (map)

  • Johnson Canyon has a tad bit of manageable snow and one significant tree down. This still needs to be ridden from the I-80 interchange (not from high up in Tahoe Donner @ Glacier Way). (map)

  • Donner Lake Rim Trail (as accessed from Northwoods Blvd and Coyote Moon Golf Course) is free of snow all the way up to the picnic table / chill spot. (map)


  • Tahoe Pyramid Trail is dry and riding well (map)

  • Boca, Stampede and Prosser reservoirs have melted out for the most part and are a great spot to get a few hours of riding in (map)

  • Carpenter Valley is still melting out (map)
