Experience Northstar

Tahoe Trail 100

July 15, 2017

The Tahoe Trail 100 mountain bike race is part of the Leadville Qualifying Series and features a two-loop, 50-kilometer course filled with beautiful views of Lake Tahoe. Rocky summits and breathtaking pine forests are found in every direction overlooking the Truckee River Valley, along with the largest alpine lake in North America. Competitors have a chance to score a slot in the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race by placing in the top of their age group or by lottery.   

Families and friends are invited to watch the race from Northstar California hiking trails and join in on the post-race celebration at the Overlook in the Village. The finishers’ party includes summer-inspired provisions and access to a full bar.
