If you follow the bike trail south from Tahoe City, you'll find nine miles of paved trail ending at Sugar Pine Point State Park. This trail has some short climbs, crosses the road a couple of times, and uses residential streets for a couple miles. It's a nice way to see some of the lake shore but it's not a trail to take the entire family on. There are stores along the way and you can stop at Sunnyside Resort for a look at the marina and a rest.
Going north from Tahoe City to Dollar Point on the paved bike trail doesn't offer much scenery, other than views of the lake. It's a total of 2½ miles, with a climb for the last ½ mile up to Dollar Point. You can get access to lake and beaches off the bike trail or by turning down Lake Forest before the climb up to Dollar Point.
