Accessible trail construction at Bliss State Park

Clearing, rock work, and trail construction to make the Lighthouse Trail a natural surface accessible route. D.L. Bliss State Park is in the Emerald Bay area of Lake Tahoe. Members of California Conservation Corps are doing the work under contract with California State Parks. Tahoe Heritage Foundation donated $20,000 for the restoration work, which includes $120,000 of state funding from the federal Recreational Trails Program. The photos were taken on a field trip at the annual training conference of State Trail Administrators in September 2007.

D.L. Bliss State Park is named for a pioneering lumberman, railroad owner, and banker of the region whose family donated 744 acres to the State Park system in 1929. The park lies along Lake Tahoe and provides some excellent views of the area. It is located 17 miles south of Tahoe City on Highway 89, just two miles north of Emerald Bay. Visitors should be aware of how high altitude may affect them. Phone 530-525-7277
