Driving Directions

Driving directions are not available for this trail. Can you provide this missing data?


This path follows the West Shore of Lake Tahoe along Hwy 89 from Tahoe City to Sugar Pine State Park. The path is approximately 12 miles in length and can be a bit difficult at times as it gains and falls in elevation, detours through residential neighborshoods, and crosses Hwy 89 several times. There are plenty of places to stop for a swim or a bite to eat along the path, but there is a small section in Homewood where the path is not finished so riders have to share the highway on a small shoulder.
