Multi-Use Trails

North Shore Trail Rehabilitation Project

The TCPUD will begin critical rehabilitation work on the North Shore Trail starting June 10th, 2024. This project is the first phase of a broader effort to improve safety and pavement conditions across TCPUD's 23-mile trail network. 

Key improvements will include safety enhancements, pavement restoration, and select trail realignments to enhance intersection safety. While the trail will remain open, detours will be in place and to further prioritize safety, the Lake Forest Campground will be closed for the 2024 season to serve as a staging area for construction equipment to ensure project completion during the current construction season. 

This important project is expected to be completed by the fall. TCPUD appreciates trail users' patience and cooperation during this time. For further information, please visit our Multi-Use Trail Rehabilitation Project site HERE.


Multi-Use Trail Description

The perfect way to tour the North and West Shore of Lake Tahoe is using our 23-mile multi-use trail network. Along the way you may find bicyclists, joggers, strollers, and even anglers enjoying the views. Parking for use of the trails is available at 64-Acres Park. Motor vehicles are strictly prohibited on the trails except for authorized maintenance. Please watch for maintenance workers and equipment. We request all trail users to be tolerant and respectful of everyone's mutual right to use these trails.

Help shape the future of the TCPUD Multi-Use Trail System!

The TCPUD’s annual Multi-Use Trail System survey previously conducted in person in August is now available online. The online survey is ‘open’ year-round, and we will emphasize participation before each summer and winter season.

Our Trail System is a valuable recreation and transportation amenity for residents and visitors in the North Tahoe area. Your feedback is essential in helping us understand trail user characteristics and identify trail improvement opportunities. You can take the survey at any time by clicking the link below. You can also take the survey while on the trail by using the QR code on any one of our Multi-Use Trail signs located throughout the Trail System.

Thank you for participating in the TCPUD Trail System Survey!
