Tahoe Trails Endowment
Project Partners: Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association, USFS Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Truckee Trails Foundation
Current Amount: $1,000,000
Tahoe Fund Goal: $3,000,000
Our vision is to create a balance between the human and natural environments in Lake Tahoe. One critical component of this work is the development and maintenance of our trail system. With higher trail usage now than ever before, we need a long-term plan to care for the trails everyone loves.
We created the Tahoe Trails Endowment to address the need for the long-term care of these trails and our trail network. Our goal is to grow the endowment to $3 million to cover the costs of annual trail work in the region.
While we are building the endowment, we are also working with our trail partners at the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association, U.S. Forest Service, Nevada State Parks, and others to develop a basin-wide trail strategy that will lay out a priority ranking for trail work. This will allow everyone to think and plan long-term.
If you love trails as much as we do, we invite you to join our efforts with a gift to the Tahoe Trails Endowment.
A very special thank you to trail enthusiasts Chris and Viktoria McNamara for kicking off our campaign with a generous gift of $100,000. Thanks to our generous donors, we now have over $1,000,000 in the endowment.
