The Tahoe National Forest is seeking public input on its proposed Pines to Mines trail project.

The proposed Pines to Mines multi-use trail would run 68 miles in length and would connect Nevada City to Truckee, Calif. It would include existing Forest Service network trails and would involve some new trail construction.

A detailed project proposal, draft proposed action and accompanying maps are available on the Tahoe NF’s website.

Parties interested in submitting input can do so online prior to Feb. 25, 2022.

Following a 30-day comment period, the Tahoe NF will review comments and put together a revised project plan that incorporates public input. A final proposed action plan and draft environmental assessment will be released late summer or early fall following the review of public comments.
