Tahoe XC: Connect with friends. Connect with nature.
Trails Update

Tahoe XC Rental and Retail shop hours and will be open Friday thru Monday, 10:00am - 4:00pm.

Trails and roads accessible from the Tahoe XC Trailhead cross over California State Park-Burton Creek, California Tahoe Conservancy, and Tahoe City PUD lands. Some California State Parks in the Tahoe Basin are currently closed. The trails and roads from Tahoe XC provide access to the Tahoe National Forest and Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit lands, which are also temporarily closed by the US Forest Service. Please observe all closures.

Please stay tuned to this website page for updates on Smoke Closures and/or similar information. While you are out enjoying the trails, use existing trails only and do not cut switchbacks, which creates unwanted cattrails, erosion, and disturbs the ecosystem- be good stewards of the environment. Thank you.
