Incline Lake Near Mount Rose Highway Summit Goes Public

Incline Lake, a scenic alpine lake near the Mount Rose Highway Summit between Reno and Incline Village at Lake Tahoe, is becoming public land. The lake and surrounding forest areas are expected to be accessible to the public by June 2009, offering space for recreational activities such as hiking, cross-country skiing and wildlife viewing. The area is located on a deer migration route. It includes riparian vegetation and lodgepole pines. Lake Tahoe water quality will directly benefit from the preservation of the Incline Lake environment. And Tahoe Rim Trail hikers will get another off-rim destination.
