Kingsbury Stinger is a one of the few dirt trails in Tahoe open to motorcycle riders. It is a re-route of an older rutted trail that was completed in 2016 through a partnership between the USFS and TAMBA. The intermediate level trail has a number of technical rock features, coupled with sustainable ride-around routes for other riders traveling uphill. It’s a good trail to ride uphill or down and provides for larger connections to the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT).
