We didn't spend much time here, but the day we spent walking the bike trails, exploring the woods and swimming in the lake at South Lake Tahoe was, by far, one of the best parts of our family vacation. This involved 2 parents and 3 "boys" 20 yrs - 18 yrs., but would have worked equally well for younger children.... More

What a wonderful way to get to great places! We stayed in a cabin right off the path. We walked or biked to Pope Beach, a mile away. We passed a gorgeous meadow and were able to bike right onto the beach. The path is mostly smooth and pretty wide. There are lots of places to stop - to look,... More

I spent the weekend of September 14th - 17th at the Cal-Neva Resort at Crystal Bay on North Lake Tahoe, NV. I rode my bicycle around the lake on Saturday, September 15, 2012. The weather was beautiful. I started at 7am at Crystal Bay, and finished at 5pm. The distance is about 75 miles. I took plenty of photos, and... More

Do yourself a favor. Go to the visitor center and get a bike path map. It's clearly marked for bike paths, lanes and routes. The paths are a little in need of repair in places, but not at all bad. Really appreciate the planning that went into the creation of them. The one thing I'd say that was awkward was... More

Living in the desert in AZ, our annual Anniversary trip to Lake Tahoe, NV. brought a wonderful cool reprieve from our hot summers! It was 72 degrees during the day (not 117), and sunny and gorgeous....as usual. The hotel-Harrahs--surprised us with a nice room, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, balloons, a free lake cruise, etc. Of course we are frequent gamblers... More

Staff was excellent (especially Steven) in assisting us for a great bike ride. The bike path is easy and great for exercise. This bike rental place has bicycles that can accommodate all ages. We took Steve's advice and stopped at the Beacon Bar & Grill for a lake shore dining. It was definitely a good restaurant choice. Don't forget to... More

We were the first guest of the day at 8:00 am. The owner greeted us and got our bikes. He was very helpful in guiding us on our way. He told us where to go and what to see. It is right on the bike path which makes it ideal as leaving point. The Cost is fair and this is... More

The people are genuinely nice and only the visitors from bay area make it unsafe. There are flat biking paths for families including the tahoe keys path leading to tahoe keys beach. There are paths past camp richardson along lake winding thru forrests. Biking, hiking, beach, tahoe has it all.

Started out at Anderson Bike rental on hwy89 at 13th ave, about a mile from the Y (intersection of hwys 50 and 89). They're really friendly, but not sure if they're just angling for tips. He had a nice spiel about what to see and do on the bike path, and was very patient with us and our youngins. Bike... More
