With limited capacity on roadways, transportation by foot and bike is essential for travel in Tahoe. Travel by foot and bike is a great way to enjoy the Tahoe landscape and trails access beaches and other popular recreation destinations. Tahoe’s active transportation network is a robust system of shared-use paths, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, pedestrian crossings, and ADA facilities that also accommodates newer modes of active transport, such as e-scooters and e-bikes. State, local, and regional agencies, such as departments of transportation, local jurisdictions, public utility districts, school districts, and transportation districts, build and maintain the active transportation network of roughly 60 miles of shared-use paths, 46 miles of bicycle lanes, 10 miles of bicycle routes, 25 miles of sidewalks, and 17 enhanced pedestrian crossings.

Local jurisdictions remove snow on 32 miles of shared-use paths throughout the winter. These paths see an average of 55,160 users per month when there is snow on the ground, demonstrating the importance of year-round maintenance to keep paths cleared for use.

The Bicycle Advisory Committee to the South Lake Tahoe Recreation JPA helps fund much of the maintenance of bike paths in the city and El Dorado County, including rehabilitation, sweeping and winter plowing. The City and Counties provide additional funding when possible. The Bike Coalition’s online map [] includes up to date winter plowing information.



Bike and scooter-share companies, such as Lime, have expanded operations to cities across the world and over the last four years operated in South Lake Tahoe on a seasonal basis (May – October). Since launching in 2017, Lime bikes and scooters have been used to make over 430,000 trips in South Lake Tahoe. Download the app for your mobile device:
