Sierra Front Recreation Coalition Web site adds trails information

Thanks to a generous grant from the Nevada Commission on Tourism (NCOT), the sierrafront.org Web site now boasts a user-friendly “Trails Page” containing trail descriptions and photos of many of the Tahoe region’s best recreational opportunities in the categories of hiking, biking, OHV, rafting /kayaking, equestrian, snowmobiling and cross country skiing.

Grant funds from NCOT were used for Web site design, photography, and a project coordinator to conduct outreach to visitor authorities, tourist destinations and others. Many in-kind volunteer hours were also donated to the project from beginning to end, adding to its overall success.

The Sierra Front Recreation Coalition will continue to add to the trails page making it a definitive source of trails and recreation information for residents and visitors alike. To visit the Web site, go to: http://www.sierrafront.org/trails.htm.

The Sierra Front Recreation Coalition is an Incline Village based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, developing and providing access to world-class outdoor recreation opportunities and resource stewardship to meet the increasing demand and diverse interests of the growing visitor and local populations along the Central Sierra Front.

SFRC is currently working with the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, Washoe County Parks and Open Space, the USFS Carson Ranger District, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe and REI in Reno to assess, design, build and fund the new Reno to Rim Trail, which will originate in the Hunter Creek area of Reno and traverse through 53,000 acres of forest and wilderness to eventually connect to the world famous Tahoe Rim Trail near Mt. Rose.
