Guests who stay at Lakeside Inn have convenient access to a very scenic bike trail. The bike trail goes to two of Lake Tahoe's more popular beaches, Nevada Beach and Round Hill Pines Beach. The trail is well used by walkers, runners, bikers, and dog walkers (dogs on this trail are happy...very happy dogs). The trailhead is at the corner of Highway 50 and Kahle Drive (two roads that border our property). There is also a great bike rental shop, Shoreline Adventure Center, on that corner if you don't bring your own.
The trail is slightly downhill to start. Just a few turns of the bike's pedals are all that's needed to allow you to coast for a couple hundred yards. When the trail flattens out, it gently meanders through the forest where some of the pine trees along the way are impressively large. Before you know it, you come to the part of the bike trail that parallels Elks Point Road. Turn left and go straight until you come to Nevada Beach.
If you want to come to Tahoe South from out of the area and don't want to drive or rent a car, that's very easy to do. Here's how:
From the Reno Tahoe International Airport, there is a comfortable bus, South Tahoe Express, that goes directly from the airport right to us here at Lakeside Inn. The South Tahoe Express has multiple daily departures from the airport. The one-way scenic ride costs about $30 per adult and about $17 for children aged 4 - 12 (discounts available for a round-trip ticket).

Once you are here and checked into your room, getting around town is easy. The Tahoe Transportation District has shuttle buses that go up Kingsbury Grade, down Highway 50, and even buses that go to Carson City. If the buses don't go close enough to where you want to go, there are plenty of cabs in town.
