Genoa Peak

Monday, August 08, 2016

Alt Names

Kingsbury Grade, Hwy 207, Genoa Peak Road, Burke Creek, Genoa Canyon, Spooner Summit, Tahoe Rim Trail, Castle Rock, Lake Tahoe Basin

Last Known StatusOpen

Great scenic views of Lake Tahoe, smooth trails, soft soil, and some killer single track is what you'll find here. The only drawback is the single track trails are just not long enough, and they sometimes dead end into the backyards of the Lake Tahoe residents.

This is a popular mountain bike area, but rest assured these trails are OHV friendly, with some even specifically marked for motorcycles. There are about ten miles of upper elevation roads with multiple side trails and some primitive camp areas and a couple nice play areas. This is a very fun place to ride; you'll just wish there was more of it.
