West Shore Trails

2 miles of Meeks Ridge Trail to Lost Lake has been built this season. Volunteer days will resume in 2024 as our professional trail crew works on a technical piece and prepares the trail for volunteer days. Until then, join us building new trail on the beautiful Kaspian Rim Trail!

We are excited to partner with  @laketahoepride, @tahoerimtrail, @skiheavenly, and the US Forest Service to work together to build a new trail! The Panorama Trail will connect to the Heavenly Gondola and with your support one day to the California Main Lodge. 

We wholeheartedly believe outdoor recreation and trails should be accessible to all people free from prejudice. We are committed to a zero-tolerance policy and do not condone harmful behaviors. Please show up with an open heart and mind. We all look forward to building trails together. Thanks to our supporters Epic Promise, Deschutes Brewery, Liquid Death, and Blind Dog Coffee for helping us throw a fun, family-friendly tailgate.

🇺🇸Happy Fourth of July from TAMBA 🇺🇸!! Whether you’re visiting or a Loc Dog, if you’re celebrating this Independence Day out on the trail, here are a few etiquette reminders to keep everyone safe and happy! 
.
If you remember one ☝️ thing, it should be 👋 BE NICE SAY HI 👋! Friendly reminder that many of the trails in the Lake Tahoe Basin are multi-use and trail etiquette helps everyone safely have fun in the outdoors! @benicesayhi ❤️🤍💙
. 
What is Trail Etiquette:
👉 Bikes yield to other trail users (hikers, equestrians, bears 🐻, and giraffes 🦒 - just making sure you’re paying attention 😉)
👉 Uphill users have the right of way ⬆️.
👉 Dogs on the trail should be kept leashed around other trail users, at trailheads, and on steep or slippery terrain. Make sure your dog is also under voice control at all times. 
👉 Announce your party when passing “just me, 2 more back, etc” so other users are aware of more bikers, hikers, etc behind you”
👉 If you’re on an e-mtb check trail forks to see what is legal to ride & before passing other users (up or downhill) say hello and ask to pass when convenient for the other user.
👉 Be aware of your surroundings and ensure you can hear 👂 other Trail users and wildlife for your safety and theirs.
👉 Also, please be aware that strava segment times won’t get you sponsored, please don’t run over other users to beat them 😉(still paying attention?)
.
👉 Say Hello! Appreciate other outdoor enthusiasts! We all have passion for the beautiful places we recreate❤️🤍💙 #buildriderespect 
.
Examples of bi-directional, multi-use trails trails? Cold Creek, Tahoe Mountain, Mule Deer, Angora Ridge, Stanford Rock, Van Sickle, Stinger… the list goes on!☺️
