The U.S. Forest Service will host a meeting to answer questions about its plan for trails in the Fallen Leaf Lake area on Sept. 19, according to a Friday statement from the agency.
The Fallen Leaf Lake Access and Travel Management Plan seeks to improve the recreation experience for residents and visitors, while protecting its natural, cultural and historic resources, according to the statement.
Under the plan, the Forest Service would expand public parking and access, while installing erosion control measures at existing and proposed parking sites. The project would also improve the trail system to provide access to popular destinations, while reducing congestion and user conflict, according to the Forest Service.
Primary differences among six alternatives for the project are how they address the existing bridge over Fallen Leaf Lake dam and the Taylor Creek stream crossings.
The meeting will be from 6-8 p.m. at the Forest Supervisor's Office at 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe.
The Forest Service will accept comments on the plan through Oct. 12.
