Great trail, but the loop is not well marked. Printed map showed cross trails that are no longer visible. TRT markers are infrequent. Some nice vantage points and outcrops with views of the lake and river. Mosquitos in some locations. Looks like it is mostly used for technical mountain biking.

Great hike. A lot of incline and rock beds but great views and exercise.

Rode part of the trail on Sunday. Before your arrived at the wall you will cross the TRT. Take a left on the TRT and get ready for some very technical single track. Lots of rock gardens. Some climbing up to about 1750 feet. Left TRT just above Tahoe City and rode down on very steep very loose fire road. Awesome ride. I would rate the TRT portion of this ride as moderate to difficult.

This is an awesome ride. Includes fire roads, some paved areas and plenty of single track. The trail was muddy due to recent rain which made it a bit ore challenging on the descents and rock gardens.
