Capital to Tahoe Trail Map

The new Capital to Tahoe Trail connects Carson City to Tahoe via 16 miles of single-track trails, Nevada State Parks announced. This nonmotorized connection serves hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers and equestrians. The official grand opening of the trail was held at Spooner Lake State Park on July 8.

The Carson Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest proposed the construction of the new trail system located between Marlette Peak and Snow Valley peak at the crest of the Carson Range.

The interconnected trail system provides quality recreation opportunities while minimizing impacts and reducing the potential for user conflicts. It is open to all non-motorized uses. |
