INCLINE VILLAGE Nev. (Monday, June 12, 2017) –The Tahoe Fund announced today that it has secured a $130,000 Recreation Trails Program grant to restore the Incline Flume Trail, also known as the “other flume trail.” To be eligible for the grant, the Tahoe Fund partnered with Friends of Incline Trails to provide funding for the environmental permitting to have the trail adopted by the Forest Service.
