OutdoorPix- Singletrack Sweetness: Andesite Ridge

Hole in the Ground trail is another classic Tahoe mountain bike ride.  One of the early highlights is climbing to 8200′ along Andesite Ridge before descending into a granite playground.  The top of the ridge is mostly rock and devoid of trees.  This gives huge panoramic views spilling out along both sides of the ridge.  Although we’ve done this ride many times, we still have “WOW!” moments when we emerge from the trees to the ridge.

Big climb, big sky, big views
