“Let’s Get Linked” Celebration - 1pm, Sunday, June 24th
Lakeside Trail festivities continue just before the first Concert at Commons Beach on Sunday, June 24th. In honor of linking our trails and connecting our communities organizers are looking to create a 'human link' with potentially thousands of participants linking arm-in-arm along the new Lakeside Trail from Fanny Bridge to the Safeway Center. The official 'link' time is planned for 1 pm and interested participants are asked to gather along the trail well in advance to assure success. The event will be captured in video and aerial photography and all “Linked” participants will be part of history and will receive a free water bottle, a free drink token for the Concert at Commons Beach and entry into a Grand Prize drawing. Following the link, the weekend festivities conclude with an afternoon of free music at Commons Beach starting at 2pm, and the capturing of an aerial town photo at 3pm.
The Tahoe City Lakeside Trail runs along the water’s edge in Tahoe City from the State Park to the east to the 'Fanny Bridge' on the west and offers unparalleled views of Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River. The newly completed trail section connects to the Tahoe City PUD’s existing 19 mile trail network, linking the North Shore Trail, the West Shore Trail and the Truckee River Trail, through Tahoe City.
The trail is much more than just a trail for the region. It is a linear parkway and promenade, winding its way through public and private properties, opening up Tahoe City’s waterfront to walkers and bikers. Along the trail there are overlooks, plazas, seat walls, picnic areas, pedestrian lighting and a variety of interpretive signage.
The trail was first conceived in the 1980’s then designed and permitted in the 1990’s. The first phase was completed in 2001. Overall, the project has entailed seven phases, five contractors, twelve funding sources, and over $10 million in grant funding.
