Genoa Peak

Saturday, November 16, 2019

Other Names

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

Last Known StatusClosed For Season

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.

This area has about ten miles of upper elevation roads with multiple side trails and some primitive camp areas plus a couple nice play areas. If you keep heading north along the main route the trails will eventually tie into South Camp Peak.

Overall this is a very fun place to ride; you'll just wish there was more of it.
