Six miles of unpaved roadway are available for hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing. The terrain is mountainous and uneven and explores the south facing slopes of the north shore of the Tahoe Basin. There is a variety of conifers and shrubs, and opportunities for wildlife and bird watching. Spring time offers many wildflowers to see, and in the fall the cottonwoods change color. In the winter, the trails are open for cross-country skiing. For more information please contact Tahoe XC. Water, restrooms, and other services are not available. Motorized vehicles are not allowed in the park.
The park is located on the northeast side of Tahoe City.
North Fork Campground is located near a beautiful creek in a remote location. It is shaded by cedar, pine, and fir trees and is a pleasant escape.
Piped drinking water, wheelchair accessible restrooms and some vault toilets. Activities include swimming, fishing, boating, water skiing, jet skiing, trails for biking, hiking, and horseback riding.
The first 1½ miles of the trail follows an old mining road and is relatively easy. The trail then becomes steeper, with many switchbacks as you drop down to the North Fork of the American River.
