Dollar Creek Bike Path
Partner: Placer County
Total Project Cost: $4,300,000
Tahoe Fund Goal: $47,000
Dollar Creek Bike Path is a 2.2 mile section of the Lake Tahoe Bikeway that will one day circumnavigate the entire Lake. This section expands the trail that currently leads from Tahoe City up to Dollar Hill. When complete, there will be more than 25 miles of contiguous Class 1 bike path from Tahoma to Carnelian Bay allowing users to explore the natural area as well as the local shops and eateries without ever getting into a car.
The project will include three new areas to stop and enjoy the scenery, benches, picnic tables, bike racks, and interpretive panels that will call attention to interesting environmental information about the trail.
UPDATE: The campaign goal to fund the new bike path has been met by our generous donors. Construction will begin in 2017.
