Fun high elevation ride on the Tahoe Rim Trail Loop at the top of Kingsbury Grade (Stateline, NV). This trail winds through a serene pine forest past interesting rock formations and great views of Lake Tahoe and Heavenly ski area. A considerable amount of climbing leads you to a fast descent on softer DG surface overlooking the Carson Valley.
Need to Know
Grab a pizza and a beer at the Fox and Hound on Tramway Drive after your ride.
This fun ride can be done as a loop by connecting the finish and start with a short ride across Tina Ct. and Virginia Dr. bringing the loop total to 8 miles. The first 5+ miles of singletrack feature many steep climbs through pine forest and rock features with several great spots to look out over South Lake Tahoe and beyond. The final 2 miles are a fast descent on softer DG trails overlooking the Carson Valley. Ride this trail in the direction indicated or you'll be facing a steep climb in the DG (which is not fun). Public parking at the top of Kingsbury Grade across from the fire station off Tramway Drive.
