Overview

Due to elevation, trail may be snow covered into late spring. This multi-use trail is popular with hikers. Be nice - say hi, and yield right of way to other users.
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.
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Grab a pizza and a beer at the Fox and Hound on Tramway Drive after your ride.

Description

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.

History & Background

This trail crosses the historic route of the Pony Express Trail.

No snow anywhere on this route. Rain generally not a problem as surface drains quickly. 8mi
