Sierra Canyon - Trail, Genoa, Nevada

Sierra Canyon - Trail, Genoa, Nevada


A moderate technical trail best ridden down hill. You can approach on the Tahoe Rim trail from either Kingsbury or Spooner. You can of course climb the trail from the bottom. The top mile or two has sections of large and loose rock, but rideable in its entirety. The middle section has some minor loose rock sections and some short uphill. If you keep your speed these are pretty much a non-event. The lower and very bottom sections are where the fun is with some nice flowy sections through the forest. A couple of spring crossings keep it cool. The very bottom is fun with narrow track and some tight turns near drop offs where you don't want to blow it. A full on creek crossing and you are almost down. If you didn't park right at the trailhead a 3 minute ride takes you to the Genoa Bar for well earned adult refreshments. A highly recommended way to end your ride. The bottom trailhead parking is on Centennial Dr. Park there and the trail is up the dirt road to the west.

A great shuttle ride to get from Spooner (recommended) or Kingsbury. As stated in the trail description there is abundant squirrely looseness in the upper couple miles. Just get through it and the ride improves dramatically. Kind of a drag going back up to get your car tho. THe approach on the TRT from Spooner is all uphill until you get to the bench, a fine out and back in itself. I am not crazy about the approach from Kingsbury. That section IMO is much better ridden North to South. The ratings below are based on riding from the top down.
