North Tahoe Trail

North Tahoe Trail 1 

The North Tahoe Shared-Use Trail is the sustainable transportation alternative envisioned by Placer County to connect the North Tahoe Regional Park to the Dollar Creek Trail terminus. When complete, the North Tahoe Shared-Use trail will connect the north shore communities of Tahoe Vista, Carnelian Bay and Tahoe City. The trail is the Placer County component of the TRPA continuous planned paved path circumnavigating Lake Tahoe.   

Current Work 

The 8-mile connection between the North Tahoe Regional Park and Tahoe City will be designed and constructed in three phases. Segment 1 is a 2.5-mile segment of trail from the Regional Park, switch backing southwest up the ridge around the shale outcropping to offer outstanding views of Agate Bay. This segment will terminate at Carnelian Bay Avenue, providing unpaved access north to Brockway Summit and a future connection west to the Dollar Creek Trail. 

Preliminary design is completed. The CEQA environmental analysis was done in April 2022  

Construction for Segment 1 is anticipated to begin Autumn of 2024, pending funding.
