Fund Flume Trail reroute

The loose, sandy descent at the end of the East Shore’s Flume Trail has long been an issue for mountain bikers and hikers, and to relieve the pressure and create a safer, more enjoyable experience, Tahoe Fund is launching a fundraising campaign to build a new singletrack trail adjacent to the road. Every dollar donated will be matched by the Spaht Family until the campaign goal of $50,000 is reached.

Once built, the Tunnel Creek Singletrack will be a 2.3-mile, multi-use trail that provides users with a less stressful alternative when descending from the Marlette Flume Trail, the Incline Flume Trail and the Tahoe Rim Trail. Expected to be completed in two phases, Phase 1 construction can begin later this summer once the funds are raised.

Tahoe Fund aims to raise $50,000 to complete construction of Phase 1 and to provide funding to secure the next grant needed for Phase 2. |
