WHERE TO CAMP FOR FREE

  • In Truckee: Sagehen campground, it’s free but it’s a bit far and no cell service. Also, lack of bike trails to ride right from the trail system
  • In Tahoe area: Limited options of free camping right near the trail system

Downieville Camping Options

OTHER OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

  • Paddling Lake Tahoe, umm, of course, you have to!  This crystal clear lake is on the top of everyone’s paddling list
  • Hiking around Lake Tahoe, if you’re out of trails to ride. So, after you’ve been there for 5-6 months or if the bike is in the shop.  Or if you have family/friends with that don’t ride

BEST TIME TO VISIT

  • Skip the summer crowds and go in the shoulder seasons. The weather is amazing in September and there are half the crowds
  • If you’re looking to ride higher elevation trails such as the Flume trail, skip the springtime and planning on hitting these trails late summer or fall to make sure they’re open
