Van Sickle Bi-State Park
Partners: Nevada Division of State Lands, California Tahoe Conservancy
Funds Granted: $25,000
Opened in the summer of 2011, Van Sickle Bi-State Park is one of the few bi-state parks in the United States that provides access to both sides of a state line. The park’s unique location, close to the concentration of tourist and residential accommodations near Heavenly Village and the Stateline Casino Core, provides the opportunity for people to access Tahoe’s outdoor environment on foot from their lodging. The Daggett Summit Spur trail, also completed in 2011, provides an integral connection from Van Sickle Bi‐State Park to the famed Tahoe Rim Trail, designated by National Geographic Adventure magazine in 2006 as one of the nation’s top ten trails.
