Sawmill Bike Path Description

The Sawmill Bike Path currently consists of two open segments—with a third in the works to link them—just south of the resort town of South Lake Tahoe. When complete, the trail will provide a seamless route from the small community of Meyers to Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

The northernmost segment runs adjacent to Sawmill Road from Lake Tahoe Boulevard, where a connection to the Lake Tahoe Boulevard Bike Path can be made, to a point just east of Echo View Estates. The southern segment begins where State Route 89/US 50 crosses the Upper Truckee River and heads south to Meyers, passing the Lake Tahoe Golf Course on the way. At the trail's southern end, continue on the Pat Lowe Memorial Bike Path to reach a cluster of businesses along the highway in Meyers.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking lots for either portion of the Sawmill Bike Path, but parking may be available along several of the local cross streets.

Sawmill Bike Path Reviews

The Sawmill trail is now complete from HWY 50/89 to South Tahoe HS. I join this trail with the Pat Lowe Memorial trail in Meyers. The combination is about 5-6 miles one way. A real nice 11 mile round trip on our tandem.

The first part of the trail crosses several business entrances in Meyers but after that there are but 4 street crossings all the way to the home of the vikings.

The trail has minimal elevation change and accesses some Mountain Bike trails near the north end. There are several restaurants near the very south end.

Nice forest setting. nice wild flowers. Nice trail - well maintained. It is now but a short run along Lake Tahoe BLVD to get to the Y - only a couple of short residential streets from Eloise Street - that accesses Pope and Baldwin Beaches.

Terrible. This trail goes right through our front yard on Sawmill Road. They have just now cut down the 100+ year old trees along our driveway to make way for this ridiculous bike trail which costs millions of taxpayer dollars to construct. The trail took out some beautiful trees and now the views are less than optimal along it, with one of our neighbors putting up the ugliest cyclone fence imaginable for 1/2 mile right on the trail which borders his property. Enjoy the Tahoe views! Meanwhile, Sawmill Road is full of pot holes and cracks due to the heavy equipment that has been going up and down the road to construct this white elephant. The trail ends at the "Y" and starts at Meyers. Big deal. It doesn't connect to the beaches at all-- it is truly a trail to nowhere unless you want to hang out at the "Y". I will be planting even more trees to hide this monstrosity which has totally reduced the privacy and peace at our house.
