New multi-use trail opens at Lake Tahoe
A new trail that recently opened is destined to become one of Lake Tahoe’s most iconic.
The new 2.1-mile multi-use trail provides access to Fallen Leaf Lake and Desolation Wilderness for non-motorized users and features stunning views of each, along with Lake Tahoe.
The trail was completed by the US Forest Service and the Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association using about 4,000 volunteer hours and contributions from Tahoe Fund donors, including the Mathman family, and a triple match from Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise guest donation program at Northstar, Heavenly and Kirkwood.
The trail officially opened on June 30.
“At Vail Resorts, we’re proud to partner with organizations like Tahoe Fund through the Vail Resorts EpicPromise community investment program,” said Deirdra Walsh, vice president and general manager of Northstar. “Their focus on sustainable recreation allows the region’s unparalleled trail systems to expand, and we can enjoy new adventures on the Lily Lake Trail for the days to come.”
