Forest Service looking to alter Tahoe Rim Trail
The U.S. Forest Service wants to hear from you about a plan to reroute sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail around Daggett Summit away from paved roads.
The Daggett Summit Project will relocate the existing Daggett area TRT from paved streets to forested land, and connect the TRT to Van Sickle State Park. This estimated 13-mile project will be completed through a combination of new trail construction, adoption and improvement of existing authorized trails and redesign and rebuild of multiple short sections of user-created trails.
The Forest Service will host a public open house on Dec. 11 from 6-8 p.m. at their office at 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe. A formal comment period will be conducted in the future.
Send your comments to Garrett Villanueva, Interdisciplinary Team Leader, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 by Jan. 11.
