This is a great sunset ride that gives amazing views of Lake Tahoe and takes you down to Round Hill Pines Beach. It's called Sting Tiki because you ride the Kingsbury Stinger trail down to the Tiki Bar. The "Super" part is by adding the Daggett Summit Connector bit at the top. A shorter version with almost no climbing is to start at the top of the Stinger Trail.

Park at the top of Kimberly Brooke Ln. There is street parking for about 4 cars. Pedal up the fire road for 1/4 mile then turn left onto the Tahoe Rim Trail: Kingsbury Loop Trail. A little more climbing then you get a fun singletrack descent down the North Benjamin Parking Area. From here, you can either ride up the road to the start of Stinger or ride up the connector to Rim Trail (recommended). Once on Stinger, it's all downhill. The bottom part, once you leave Stinger is tricky to follow so it's recommended you mount your phone on your handlebars for that part. Finish at the Tiki Bar at Round Hill Pines beach and order a Pain Killer!
