Snapdragon Trail

Project Status: Completed in 2015

The Snapdragon Trail connects the Tahoe Rim Trail at Twin Lakes to the Red House Flume Trail on the east side of Tunnel Creek Road in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park. TAMBA constructed this 1-mile singletrack trail in 2014-2015 to bypass the steep and sandy fire road that currently exists. TAMBA named the trail after the abundant Penstemon flowers, often confused with Snapdragon flowers, that were avoided or transplanted during construction.
