TRT crossing Kingsbury Grade Hwy 207

The Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) crosses the Kingsbury Grade Hwy 207 between Daggett Pass and Stateline in Douglas County, Nevada. This relatively new TRT section in the Carson Range connects the upper end of the Van Sickle Trail and the Kingsbury South (KB/S) trailhead with the Kingsbury North (KB/N) trailhead [1]. Like almost any stretch of the TRT, this one is marked well. On both sides of the highway, ready-to-cross hikers and bikers are informed that the motorized traffic does not stop: CROSS ALERTLY!

On the south side, a short stairway connects the roadside with the single-track TRT (see top picture). At the wall next to the stairs, a sign—proudly decorated with the Tahoe-Rim-Trail shield—points to a stair bypass: Left on Buchanan Rd. - Left through USFS Gate.
