1. Flume Trail—Lake Tahoe, NV
This 14-mile intermediate level trail offers some fantastic forested vistas overlooking Lake Tahoe. You need to make your way up 1,000 feet at the beginning of the ride, but getting to that view provides excellent motivation. Following your ride, you can relax and cool off by swimming in the lake. There are also many nice places for a picnic.
