    Corral to Kingsbury via Stateline?

    Anyone have a map or GPS track for trails from the bottom of Corral to the beginning of the TRT at Heavenly's Stagecoach lodge?

    This track would have shown the whole route had may batteries not been low.

    Basically just ride the power line trail back to saddle road, stay on saddle past Ski run Blvd and this track starts in the Heavenly parking lot and takes you up to stagecoach. About a 35 mile loop, enjoy!

    I'd recommend skipping the sandy uphill road section of Powerline. At the bottom of Corral take a left and a quick right on Trout Creek single track. After 2 miles of fun easy single track you'll hit Columbine which is a paved road. Head up and right on Marshall road. At the top of the hill take a right on High Meadows and follow the dirt road to Powerline single track on your left at the kiosk and gate.

    Depends on the loop your doing, if your dropping down Armstong pass to Corral for the 35 mile loop that does not make much sense, might as well park at Heavenly. If your doing the Whole Punisher as a loop and throwing in Corral for extra credit then that's a reasonable place to park. When do you plan on doing this?

    On the trail right now, bushwhacking. There was a fork in the trail between Saddle Rd and Kingsbury. I took the high trail since it was better marked and I didn't want to lose elevation. Apparently it's a new section of the TRT that's about halfway finished. Hopefully I can get out to the other end with enough time to make it up the hill. Yeah, I'm doing the Punisher but dropping from Armstrong down the connector and Corral down to my car at Corral and Powerline.

    Ha, nothing like live trail updates

    Holy crap, early's an understatement It's probably only about a third of the way done so far, the first (completed) section was loose, but good. After about half a mile it deteriorated into just TRT trail flags with some preliminary roughing in of the trail, and shortly thereafter there were merely ribbons tied to branches and bushes to mark the route that the trail will eventually take.

    I made it out to Easy St. (Kingsbury) after about 3 hours of toil (sometimes optimism is a liability). It was too late and I was too spent by that point to start The Punisher. Still beat the hell out of being at the office though!

    Doesn't look like much progress on the Van Sickle since we did an out and back on it early this season. At least the views are nice.

    It'd be nice if the Forest Circus posted a "Dead End", or "Work In Progress" sign at the entrance, I'd finally have some Freel-Armstrong helmet cam footage to have on a perpetual loop at work if they had

    Oh yeah, and thanks for the tip on the Powerline bypass route Nutball!

    Sorry, I was about to warn you not to take the new TRT up. I got called into a meeting as I was typing and my browser crashed when I got back. At least you didn't suffer up Powerline road or the road up to Star Lake.

    Having done that Swack with skins in the winter I know your pain, think I hit 3 gully's filled with adlers/willows that were just hell. I chalked it up to better than sitting in a cube also

    yea- the one set of tracks(actually 2 sets-out and back) on that trail spur to Kingsbury were mine and laid down on thursday- probably added an extra hour to my Punisher loop. i was lucky to find the lower trail that got me to Kingsbury. other than that detour- was a great ride and my first experience on the south TRT.

    Yeah, I saw those. You're obviously smarter than I am.

    no- not smarter at all- i went beyond the wood piled at the end of the trail before i turned around. it looked like a well established trail at the beginning.

    I did this loop today ending with Toads. The new TRT has a yellow flag at the start that I don't remember being there before. Maybe someone should bring a sharpie next time and write "dead end" on it.

    Found a great single track route out of Boulder Lodge that skips the steep single track in the middle of the ski run. I also skipped the .5 mile tech start of the TRT. Came in right a the top of the first downhill.

    I must had a good day, as this didn't feel any harder then being shuttled. 8 hours 40 miles and almost all singletrack.

    Nice work Nutball, might knock that one out tomorrow, was done with my Armstong/Toads loop by 10:00 AM, feeling the need for something bigger. Wonder if the new single track is part of the new TRT, did it look like it had been around for awhile or new?

    When you get to Boulder Lodge take the paved road up to the right. After climbing for a bit look for a single track on the left, I think it's before a narrow road sign or something. If you start descending into some housing you went too far. The single track will come out on the ski run close to where you climbed back out to Tramway on your gps track. Continue up the ski run and take the fire road up to the TRT start or up farther to skip the tech TRT climb (recommended).

    Thanks for that! worked out great. Tried adding some single track to bypass the fireroad bypass of the first part of the rim trail, turned out very steep and sandy but it was efficient Feeling pretty worked today so I just dropped Armstrong, the descent that just keeps giving.


    Saw the Rim trail workers out, they had just busted all the way through clearing the corridor and hope to have the whole new section done this year They they will focus next year on the new trail connector from the casino's just for El Castigador

    Nice, I saw that single track that you took but decided to pass. Where did you see the TRT trail workers? Is the new section off to the left when climbing up the fireroad to Boulder Lodge?

    Ah, I saw the TRT truck there also and didn't think anything of it. There was also a bunch of tents up there last time we were there.

    I've been doing a bunch of trail work days on the new TRT sections. They're great guys to work with and the new trails are fun, with great flow (everyone LOVES the new Kingsbury North connector).

    They'll be working every Tuesday and Saturday through the middle of October, and I recommend people help out:
    http://www.tahoerimtrail.org/index.p...ere&Itemid=103

    They purposely don't finish the start of unfinished trails to try and keep people off them, but apparently people just can't resist following the flags. Hint: if there are flags, that means the trail is STILL BEING BUILT, i.e. NOT FINISHED, and will probably dead-end you into something nasty.
