On the Hill: Mountain Biking the Bench 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 bike the Bench Trail.

    About the ride: This section of the Tahoe Rim Trail that runs from Spooner to Kingsbury has, you guessed it, a bench, perfect for resting and viewing the lake. Drew Hanley starts at Spooner, stops at the bench, and head’s back, for about a 10-mile roundtrip ride. Take your Dramamine, and join him for the ride!

    Today’s weather: The whole week is looking at temps in the low 80s with light breezes and no rain in the forecast. And that is summer in Lake Tahoe. — National Weather Service
