Fallen Leaf Road is 4.94 miles long and extends from SR89 to the southern end of Fallen Leaf Lake at Stanford Sierra Camp. The proposed project is to complete roadway improvements along a 2-mile segment of Fallen Leaf Road from SR89 to Tahoe Mountain Road, including an extension of the bike path from the Fallen Leaf Lake Campground to Tahoe Mountain Road. The currently deteriorating pavement conditions are a deterrent for users of the Fallen Leaf Road to access Federal lands, who are often towing boats, bikes, camping gear or snowmobiles
