Comment on e-bikes on Tahoe Basin trails

Electric bike on dirt road stock

The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit has released an environmental assessment of the Basin Wide Trails Project to address trail system access and connectivity. Comments on the plan will be accepted through Oct. 28 at bit.ly/tahoe_trails.

This project will analyze the current road and trail system and provide direction on how to better meet the need for e-bike access on National Forest lands in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Project work will include constructing new routes, upgrading trail crossings over streams and wetlands, installing directional and interpretive signs, and developing trailheads, parking areas and access points.

E-bike use is currently permitted on National Forest roads and trails in the Tahoe Basin that are designated for motor vehicle on the Motor Vehicle Use map. | usda.gov
