Tahoe East Shore Trail

Once called the 'Impossible Trail' due to its many construction and funding obstacles, the Tahoe East Shore Trail is a multi-use path extending from the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and SR-28 to Sand Harbor. The 3-mile long, ADA-accessible path was completed in the Fall of 2019 and offers stunning views of Lake Tahoe. This project was led by the Tahoe Transportation District and supported by 14 agencies and nonprofits.

For more information about the trail, visit the Tahoe Fund's Tahoe East Shore Trail webpage.
