The State Route 89 corridor is one of the most visited and popular destinations within the Lake Tahoe Region. Traffic congestion and year-round visitation burdens roads, parking and other infrastructure.
After the recent completion of the SR 89 Corridor Management Plan, the creation of a multi-use trail along the lake’s southwest shoreline was identified as a high priority need. The planning process to design the Cascade to Meeks section of the West Shore Tahoe Trail has now begun. You're encouraged to be a part of it.
The first of several upcoming opportunities for community involvement in the trail feasibility study will be an informational webinar on October 25, 2021 at 5:30 p.m (the event was postponed from its original schedule due to the Caldor Fire). CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for the Zoom webinar. Public comments and questions will be available through the chat function during the webinar.
The trail feasibility study will take place in 2021-2022. During this time there will be opportunities for the public and key stakeholders to give input on the project’s vision and goals, trail segments, and access points.
Once complete, the West Shore Tahoe Trail will enable multi-use access to some of Lake Tahoe’s most treasured locations like Emerald Bay, Meeks Bay and Baldwin Beach along with access to multiple trailheads.
