Ward Creek

 Ward Creek Park is located just under 3 miles from Tahoe City on Hwy 89 south. You can access several hiking, biking and running trails just south of the Ward Creek Bridge, at the corner of Timberland Road or from Rideout Community Center, which also offers free parking. The trails are dirt and also are access to the Stanford Rock loop which crosses the Tahoe Rim Trail and brings you back down to Ward Creek Road. Trail Maps available at Rideout and West Shore Sports.
