The Ride:
Mr. Toads has been a popular ride in the South Tahoe area for many years – mainly because there were few technical downhill rides in the area. There are a couple of options available: you can do a car shuttle and start at Big Meadow Rest Area or start at the TRT trailhead further up Luther Pass Road on the left. On the lower part of the downhill you can choose to either bear left at conclude your ride in Meyers at the bike shop (this rides map) or bear right and finish at Fountain Place Rd. Some riders enjoy starting their ride at Fountain Place Rd. and riding up the trail.

  • Sometimes the trail is just not enough
