Partnership releases trails strategy

A coalition of Tahoe partners developed Tahoe Regional Trails Strategy to serve as a blueprint for a connected and accessible dirt trail network for Tahoe. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) has been leading the strategy with the Washo Tribe of Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association, Tahoe Fund, Tahoe Rim Trail Association, California State Parks, Nevada State Parks, California Tahoe Conservancy and Achieve Tahoe.

The strategy outlines a vision, preliminary priorities over the next 15 years and strategies for implementation, but leaves details of any project to land managers and trail stewards. The goals are to have trails be environmentally sustainable, equitable, connected, enjoyable and feasible.

The partners encourage the public to provide feedback on the draft strategy through March 31. There will also be a virtual public webinar on March 21 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. that will include an overview of the planning process and a look at the biggest trail priorities for the next five years. Public feedback and questions will be available through the chat function during the webinar. Register for the webinar, view the draft strategy or share feedback on the project website. |
