Because of the Caldor fire the Forest Service has closed all trails in South Lake Tahoe until the end of 2021. Although it will be awhile before you can avail yourself of this trail system, Cycle California! made the editorial decision to run this story about the Lily Lake Trail because it is interesting — how this trail came together with the sweat equity of TAMBA and other stakeholders.
It reminds us that what can be envisioned is what is possible.
I had a chance during June to ride the Lily Lake Trail twice while it was still under construction. Situated high above the south shore of Fallen Leaf Lake, it features views that include Lake Tahoe and into the Desolation Wilderness. If I was to try to describe it in one word I might go with, “Spectacular.”
