Sierra Business Council is thrilled to announce the new edition of the Lake Tahoe Water Trail Map & Access Guide. This waterproof guide helps kayakers and paddle boarders safely navigate the amazing 72-mile water route on the cobalt blue waters of what is known as the crowning jewel of the Sierra.

What’s New For the Lake Tahoe Water Trail Map

Like any great tool, where each version is new and improved, the 2019-2020 Guide is no different. The new Lake Tahoe Water Trail Map & Access Guide is revamped, from the graphics to the information within it. Standing at a whopping 24” x 36” (don’t worry – it’s foldable), the highly detailed map pinpoints all of the 37 public launch and landing sites including the Lake Tahoe Water Trail’s distinct 20 trailheads, featuring wayfinding signage, restrooms, paddle shops, and parking. And that’s not all! It also provides:

  • Tips on water safety
  • Summer wind / weather patterns
  • Ideas for out & back day trip routes
  • Campgrounds
  • Guides on conservation (e.g. Tahoe Yellow Cress) & how to help prevent against aquatic invasive species (AIS) by becoming a Tahoe Keeper

Simply put, this IS the ultimate, must-have guide before you head out onto “Big Blue!”
