Sad to see the dry conditions but many trails are clear and open early for your hiking, biking and running pleasure.  The Incline Flume, Tunnel Creek and Marlette Flume are all good to go. We've got a little longer before the TRT clears in the area of the Mt. Rose meadows. Wildflowers are not out yet but we will be sure to let keep you updated when they arrive.
Have you seen these signs yet?

Last year Lake Tahoe NV State Park put this up at the bottom of Tunnel Creek Road, advising that fees are to be collected from trail users. They plan to put in a collection box this summer and do some enforcement later in the year.  Tunnel Creek Road is part of the State Park fee area which includes Spooner Lake, Marlette Lake and the Marlette Flume trail.  The Park has put together this info sheet:  LTNVSP info

While there is some very legitimate opposition to this new collection station, user fees do help to maintain the trails and even potentially to build new trail - particularly in heavily used areas. Perhaps we may even see a single track alternative to Tunnel Creek Road!  See the Park's draft trail system at this link:  Draft Master Plan

The Park is also exploring the possibility of setting up a season pass option for trail users - which we would very much prefer to see.  More to come on this.  And please feel free to contact the Park with your comments and questions.

Incline Flume Project Update
T he Ponderosa Ranch, LLC has begun discussions with land agencies to donate the Bullwheel and Incline Flume Trail land to a public entity.   This is a  very generous move by the Ponderosa Ranch and a huge opportunity to see our goal of an accessible, legal and improved Incline Flume Trail.

Though the Ponderosa folks are trying to make this happen quickly, these things take time to make their way through the bureaucracy and legalities. So in the meantime we are trying to win Forest Service approval to start work on the portions of trail near Mt. Rose Highway.  These are the most heavily used areas already and would be the natural place to begin improvements.
Incline to Sand Harbor Bike Path is a Go!

Congratulations to the Tahoe Fund, great news for runners, bikers, walkers and beachgoers! The Tahoe Fund raised enough private funds last year to trigger the necessary public funding for this 3 mile bike path to Sand Harbor.

The first mile of the path is scheduled for construction later this year.

Happy Trails!
