Attend the Grand Opening: Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail

Panel 6 Store and Filter color backJoin SYRCL in celebrating the grand opening of the newly updated Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail. The celebration will be on the morning of Monday, November 2.

The 1.5-mile loop trail, located off of Bowman Lake Road, now has new and improved interpretive signs. Visitors to the trail will learn about the ecology and history of the area, with a focus on the importance of mountain meadows.

SYRCL would like to thank our project partners. Sign content was developed in collaboration with the Tahoe National Forest. Local artist Jennifer Rain Crosby contributed original artwork. The signs were designed by Tallac Applied Ecology & Design.

Funding for this project was provided by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, an agency of the State of California.
