Lake Tahoe is an area that is all about getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors. It is only fitting, then, that there are paved biked paths for people to enjoy whether walking, running or biking. For the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, there is a bike path that connects Squaw Valley with Tahoe City. The trail splits at 64 Acres parking lot with one direction going to Homewood and the other path leading to Dollar Hill or Squaw Valley. The paved 1.5-mile Pinedrop Trail provides easy access by bicycle from Kings Beach to the North Tahoe Regional Park in Tahoe Vista. In Truckee there is the Truckee River Bike Path that begins at the Regional Park. From the park it extends out along the Truckee River and out toward different neighborhoods including Glenshire and Olympic Heights. For South Lake Tahoe the bike paths interconnect the Nevada side of town (Stateline) with the west side of town. From here the bike path continues along the shoreline, eventually connecting with Camp Richardson.
To help you take advantage of all of the paved, family-friendly bike riding in both North Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe, there are a variety of bike shops that rent bikes for day or weekly rates. There are even bike rental companies that will deliver your bike to your address and pick it up when your'e finished.
