North Tahoe Public Utility District Celebrates Completion of Multi-Use Trailhead Project at the North Tahoe Regional Park
(Tahoe Vista, CA) North Tahoe Public Utility District Board of Directors, Recreation and Parks Commissioners and Staff came together to celebrate the completion of the Multi-Use Trailhead Project.
This project included the restoration of the upper parking lot and development and construction of a multi-use regional trailhead which will be part of the North Tahoe Trail being developed and constructed by Placer County. Asphalt reconstruction and restriping for 62 parking spaces and permanent stormwater BMP’s for the parking lot were completed. This project also constructed paved ADA/multi-use access paths to Tahoe TreeTop Adventure Park, tennis courts, and the Tahoe Unleashed dog park. Additional improvements include bike repair stations, bike locker, and racks, and a bike wash station will be installed this fall by District staff. These projects are funded by grants and funding from Placer County and a partnership with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District. This project also included reconstruction of the gazebo by the tennis courts that was destroyed due to heavy snowstorms in Winter 2017.
The completion of this project was timely with Placer County announcing a contract for preliminary design and environmental review for 1.7 miles linking the North Tahoe Regional Park with Carnelian Bay Avenue. The proposed trail alignment will use existing public trail easements and public land parcels from the U.S. Forest Service and California Tahoe Conservancy. No private property easements are expected to be needed to complete the project. For more information on this project click here.
