National Forest Trail would Connect Reno, Lake Tahoe

Posted:

The Forest Service has released a plan to increase access to the wilderness between Reno and Lake Tahoe.

The proposal called the "Rim to Reno Trail" explores two possible routes to connect southwest Reno to the Tahoe Rim trail that circles the lake.

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association secured a grant to help pay for the $200,000 environmental assessment for the trail.

One plan calls for a 17-mile trail stretching southward from Hunter Creekm, passing through the high country of the Mount Rose Wilderness and ultimately connecting with the Rim Trail. Another proposes a 19-mile trail system beginning at a trailhead at the Ballardini Ranch, stretching through Thomas Creek Canyon and connecting with the summit trail at the same spot.
