DID YOU KNOW… A new trail could link the Carson Valley to the Tahoe Rim Trail?

The trail system would link the Genoa foothills to Kingsbury Grade and the Tahoe Rim Trail has been guaranteed funding by the Nevada Division of State Lands.

Environmental assessment of the Genoa Foothill Trail System will begin next year and the trail could be completed by spring 2012.

The Carson Valley Trails Association, which is the recipient of nearly $400,000 in grant money, will host a Genoa Foothill Trail System preview event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Mormon Station Historic State Park in Genoa.

The western Carson Valley trail will be done in two phases. It will begin near the town of Genoa and move north and south from Adams Canyon, west of the Eagle Ridge development, up along Kingsbury Grade where it will connect with the Tahoe Rim Trail.

Other projects under way for the Tahoe Rim Trail Association include the Rim to Reno project and the a link with the Discovery Trail, which runs from California to Washington, D.C. The trail would link the Rim Trail with the Discovery Trail along Lakeview Estates on Highway 50.
