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. | tahoefund.org
