Fallen Leaf Lake/Angora Ridge Trail Project

The Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Assn. (TAMBA) and the Forest Service are building new world-class trails around one of the most beautiful places in Tahoe: Angora Ridge and Fallen Leaf Lake. Three miles are funded – we’re raising money for the last three.

Because all donations are matched, roughly one dollar you donate builds one foot of trail. Please donate here:

Fallen Leaf Lake is a gem at the base of Mount Tallac. To the west of the lake is Angora Ridge, site of the devastating 2007 Angora Fire. With your help, we can link many old user trails and connections to the new trails at Tahoe Mountain. The US Forest Service completed the hard work of environmental approvals for approximately 15 miles of new trails. These trails are ‘shovel ready’ but need funds for construction.

TAMBA is teaming up with the Forest Service in 2017 to build the first phase of these new trails: six miles in total on three new trails. More details here

Some of these trails will eventually be part of a bikeable trail around The Lake.

This project coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Angora Fire. On June 24, Lake Valley Fire Dept will host an event to remember the devastating 2007 fire and celebrate the rehabilitation of the area. Also, Lake Valley Fire is organizing volunteers to help with the trail building.

TAMBA gave away a pair Heavenly Lift Tickets to John Drum of South Lake Tahoe on 21 Jan and Eric Gerken of Reno on 11 Feb. Congratulations to them and happy skiing. Also, a big thank-you to everyone who joined or renewed their membership during this sweepstakes period. TAMBA added over 60 memberships in January and the first half of February…which is truly remarkable considering mountain biking is not prevalent subject this winter!
