Map and Directions
Mr. Toads Wild Ride, Sept. 24
NOTE: Times will be announced. This is just the directions.
There are a couple of ways to get from Truckee down to our meeting spot in South Lake Tahoe. This map shows the route down 89. An alternate is to take 267 down to the lake, turn left and follow Highway 28 around the Nevada side of the lake. If you do this, a few blocks past the big casinos on the South side of the lake, look for the traffic light and left turn onto Pioneer Trail. Then if you miss Oneidas St, just turn around when you dead-end into 89.
If you got directions in an email they also mentioned taking 267 down and turning right, but as you can see from the map below it will be much shorter to go over to 89 and then down.
If you're in Truckee, just take I-80 or Donner Pass Road westward to 89, then go South.
Follow 89 down to Tahoe City. There will be a big intersection where 89 goes to the right probably a traffic light. If you start seeing Lake Tahoe on your right, you missed the turn. Turn around and follow 89 South. Otherwise, turn right at the intersection and enjoy views of Lake Tahoe on your left.
Keep following 89 South to the bottom end of Lake Tahoe. Along the way you will pass the very scenic Emerald Bay. If you leave extra time you can pull off here and enjoy the view. We'll let you know how much time to allow to reach our meeting spot on time.
In South Lake Tahoe there will be a big intersection with Highway 50. Stay on 89, which joins with 50. Straight through the big intersection.
After about three more miles, look for Pioneer Trail on your left. It will be traffic light. Left on Pioneer Trail.
Follow Pioneer Trail about 2/3 mile, and turn right on Oneidas St. This should be about the fifth street on your right.
Look for a place to park along Oneidas St. that will be minimally annoying to the local residents.
There is a park entrance at the end of the street but I don't know if parking is allowed in there, so we stay on the street unless otherwise notified. This is where the ride will end. From there we will shuttle up to the trailhead, further south on 89.
