Hole in the Ground Trail

This ride passes through the kind of country that you’ve hiked and backpacked in, and wished you could’ve mountain biked in—and now you can. Thanks to the Tahoe National Forest, mountain bikes can ride this wonderful trail. Even the dirt road up to the beginning of the singletrack is scenic, with views of Castle Peaks and flower-covered meadows. The singletrack begins by climbing to the top of Andesite Ridge on a hard-packed and smooth surface at an incline that’s perfect. From the top of the ridge, there are good views to the south, east, and north. A narrow trail allows you to climb to the top of Andesite Peak for even better views of the area. Highlights: This is some of the nicest Sierra landscape that mountain bikers are allowed access to. Enjoy views of Castle Peaks, two pristine and beautiful swimming lakes, meadows filled with wildflowers, red fir and mountain hemlock forests, and well-built, narrow sections of lightly to moderately technical singletrack.
