Description

Bicycling, walking, and other forms of active transportation are important methods of travel that promote healthy lifestyles, improve air quality, boost the local economy, and enhance community.

Multi-modal access to recreation sites will reduce reliance on private vehicle, reducing congestion, and increasing safety and human experience. Under this program, partners will build trails to fill in gaps in the Tahoe Trail, a shared use path that will circumnavigate Lake Tahoe by 2045, connect users to recreation areas in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and increase recreation opportunities by building shared-use trails.  This action priority also includes building and improving mountain bike trails and hiking trails.

 

 

Projects include:

  • Building trails to fill in gaps in the Tahoe Trail, a shared use path that will circumnavigate Lake Tahoe by 2045.
  • Trail connectivity within and between communities and safe routes to school.
  • Trail connects between population centers and recreation access.
  • Trail improvements, including loops, connectors, and crossings.
  • Trail connections to areas outside the Basin.
  • Projects consistent with US Forest Service Road and Trail Access and Travel Management Plans.
  • Bridges or other well-designed crossings over waterways or stream environment zones.
