On the Hill: Mountain Biking Van Sickle Trail
  • On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different Lake Tahoe adventure every day.

    Today’s activity: Mountain biking Van Sickle Trail..

    About the ride: Blue skys, an even bluer Lake Tahoe in the foreground and one killer trail awaited Drew Hanley as he took his mountain bike out for a ride down the Van Sickle Trail. Trails are dry and will start to get dusty before long unless we get some rain, so grab your bike, or even your hiking shoes, and head to this super conveniently located trailhead behind Harrah’s Casino in Stateline.

    Today’s weather: Temps are up to 89 today, with just a little chance of afternoon rains. A very light breeze is on tap to cool outdoor adventurers nicely. — National Weather Service
