The Tahoe East Shore Trail is a spectacular three-mile paved path that provides a new opportunity for the community to experience the natural beauty of the eastern shore of Tahoe. The path significantly improves the safety of those traveling down the Highway 28 corridor, while creating an exceptional recreational amenity with added environmental benefits. With a 10-foot wide path, it meets the American Disability Act standards to ensure it is accessible to everyone to ride, walk or stroll.
Through the generous support of Tahoe Fund donors, we helped secure a $12.5M federal grant for the trail and developed a long-term maintenance fund for the trail.
Plans are now underway for the extension of the Tahoe East Shore Trail, extending from Sand Harbor to Spooner Summit. This next phase will expand the Highway 28 safety improvements, shared-use path, parking, transit stops, emergency pullouts, visitor amenities, and other environmental improvements. Project partners at the Tahoe Transportation District, Nevada Department of Transportation, and the US Forest Service, are finalizing the construction plans for the next segment.
