    TRT: Kingsbury to Armstrong or Big Meadows

    Yooo...

    What's up everybody! I'm planning on doing a trip to tahoe in a couple of weeks and had a quick question. I'm planning to ride from Kingsbury to Armstrong or Big Meadows.

    Once you get to Armstrong or Big Meadows how can you get back to Kingsbury without riding back? Is there a shuttle or bus you can take?

    Watta Bikes are located on Hwy 50 in Meyers about a mile pedal at the end of Armstrong>Coral>Powerline where it meets Onidas Rd. They run a shuttle from their shop.

    I would call them in advance. I would leave your car at the ending point, and take the shuttle to the trail head if possible. You won't have to worry about meeting them at a certain time when you finish. How come you are not dropping down Toads? Kind of a shame to end at Big Meadows with all that downhill vertical left to be ridden.

    The official Forest Service name is Saxson Creek. Most people call it Mr. Toads Wild Ride or Toads. You can see it on the map here https://arnica.csustan.edu/mtbike/Ma..._BigMeadow.jpg

    ( from Steve Wolfs website https://arnica.csustan.edu/mtbike/ )

    It connects the TRT to Meyers in a way that you will not forget.

    Armstrong to Connector to Corral is a much better descent from the TRT than Big Meadows.

    Cold Creek trail below Big Meadows is fun, but it's a crummy fire road descent from the TRT down to Big Meadows.

    Toads is a lot of extra climbing after Armstrong Pass. It's not marked as a pass on the map, but it's nearly as high as Freel.

    Do Toads. Worth the extra climbing for sure. I even like that section of TRT right before "Toads" starts.

    I run Wanna Ride-Tahoe Bike Shuttle and we do point to point shuttles in the South Tahoe area. Just call (775) 588-5800 or email [email protected] to set it up. We can meet you at your car where you will come off the trail and take you over to the Kingsbury South trailhead. I totally agree with Tahoetic - you should drop down Toad's as opposed to continuing on the Rim Trail to Tahoe Meadows - an amazing ride that will not disappoint you! Another great option is to drop down the Armstrong Pass trail to the Connector and then to either Corral or Sidewinder. It's a little bit of a shorter ride than going on to Toad's and it comes out at the same place - so you could play it by ear and decide that day which descent you want to take.
