Say Hello to Mountain Biking and Crystal Clear Fresh Water Lakes when in El Dora

Posted by Miley Munroe on October 22nd, 2018

Stretching and straddling the borders of California and Nevada, there lies the world’s most significant freshwater lake resource in Lake Tahoe. New to the wonders here at El Dorado County? Welcome to the place that’s exquisite in several ways, starting from being the base that leads further to the high Sierra Nevada mountains from the fact that this is possibly and globally the most prominent mountain biking destination.

A fan of mountain biking? Don’t know where to go for your next adventure or destination travel? Make merry with the mountains close to the Sierra Nevada and drive your way through an exquisite valley of colorful flowers, running through a rugged terrain that is 400 miles from north-to-south and approximately 110 miles panning towards the east-west corridor.

As you explore further and take the plunge to visit one of the rarest trails, which lead to a more significant and unbelievable passage, you will find some fantastic trails and scenic destinations, which you will never forget for the rest of your lives. The Yosemite Valley - home to 100 million-year-old fossils and granite structures, Mount Whitney (14,505 ft.), King Canyon National Parks along with three other parks and around 20 wilderness areas, you say it, you will get it! Lake Tahoe mountain biking enthusiasts come every year to re-start from where they left and prepared for months to acclimatize to the severe conditions here at the ranges where oxygen is barely sufficient, and there are chances of people losing their senses.

Moving further, when you’ve had enough of the view, the beauty, and the trees - come down to the real thing; mountain biking. Apart from the natural wilderness and the fantastic strata of flora and fauna, Lake Tahoe basin and the national forest together have the best mountain bike trails, which welcome you round-the-year.
