West Shore Bike Path
Partners: North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, Placer County Parks, California Tahoe Conservancy, and Tahoe City Public Utility District
Funds Granted: $42,547
The West Shore Bike Trail Project is the critical “missing link” in the popular west shore network of bike and pedestrian trails connecting Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, and Tahoma. The trail ended in the Homewood area, where bikers and runners were forced onto the narrow shoulders of Highway 89.
The Tahoe City Public Utility District and the California Tahoe Conservancy sought out funding to build this one mile segment in coordination with Caltrans’ plans to install new stormwater improvements along the highway. Now completed, visitors and residents are able to enjoy a continuous 20-mile network on the west shore, linking parks, stores, restaurants, and neighborhoods along Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River.
