See long-time CVTA volunteer Mary Erba leading host Chis Orr on a hike up the Genoa Canyon trail.  Filmed Summer 2023.  The CVTA segment starts at 20:17.

CVTA volunteer Erica Roselius recently appeared in a segment for Outside Lake Tahoe. She highlighted the ability to enjoy our multi-use trails right now which, unlike those in higher elevations, are mainly snow-free. 

Special thanks to Visit Carson Valley and Erica for making this happen. Check it out!

The James Lee Loops trail project was recently approved by the USFS in February. At roughly 3.7 miles in length, these loops will provide several flat loop opportunities in the vicinity of Jacks Valley Elementary School and James Lee Park. Hikers, dog walkers, bikers and equestrians will be able to choose variable trail loops as short as 1.5 miles, or longer loops of 3 or more miles. When used in combination with the Jacks Valley Loop and Clear Creek Trail, over 10 miles can be traversed with almost no overlap in this area of Jacks Valley. Trail work will begin as the snow retreats this spring. If you would like to help with this project and ongoing maintenance on all of our trails in Carson Valley, contact us at Contact CVTA – Carson Valley Trails Association
