The State Route 89 Corridor Management plan was completed in 2020 after a 2-year process that engaged key stakeholders, land managers and the public. The plan outlines a vision and a set of goals that address everything from traffic congestion to public access to environmental protections along State Route 89. The need to create a walking and biking trail from the area of Cascade Lake to Meeks Bay, through Emerald Bay, was identified as a top priority in the Corridor Management Plan. As Lake Tahoe continues to experience increased visitation, transportation solutions are important investments in sustainable recreation and communities.
The Cascade to Meeks Trail Feasibility Study, is the first project that has come as a direct result of the Corridor Management Plan. Once complete, the study will identify the preferred routes for the trail, access points, and a cost/feasibility analysis.
Steering committee members include: California State Department of Parks & Recreation, Caltrans, El Dorado County, The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California, and US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. Many other key stakeholders such as local organizations, government agencies, businesses, and individuals are invited and encouraged to participate in the planning process.
