Tahoe Rim Trail to Armstrong Pass

There are so many ways to mountain bike the Tahoe Rim Trail, and this was a route I’ve never done and had a good time riding.

  • I caught the shuttle to Luther Pass from Over The Edge Sports in South Lake Tahoe.
  • The shorter option would be to have a friend shuttle you to Luther Pass and then park here on Fountain Place Road.
  • There are a couple of creek crossings along the way where you can filter water. I brought 2.5 liters and ran out with 3 miles to go.
  • The initial climb is killer, don’t lose faith.
