If you want to do some climbing followed by a technical descent, this route is for you. You can start from either of the Shoreline of Tahoe stores. The climb up on Edgewood Canyon trail (aka Pony Express) parallels Kingsbury and isn’t technical. Near the end you have a choice, either take the Tahoe Rim Trail up to the Van Sickle Connector trail or continue on to the end of Edgewood, bike on some roads over to the Stagecoach base area and catch the new access trail up to the Tahoe Rim Trail and over to the Van Sickle Connector Trail. The second option is the easier one. If you like technical descents, then you’ll love Van Sickle Connector. It is a new trail with great views of Lake Tahoe and the Stateline area. It ends just behind the Heavenly Village where one of the Shoreline Stores is. Ask at one of our stores for directions.
