The Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway, which is connecting Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake, opened last week on a new 1.2-mile section near Hirschdale.

Organizers of the effort said that the new section is on difficult terrain, requiring numerous retaining walls. The last section of the trail, from Iceland to Floriston, is expected to be built next year.

The completed sections mean bicyclists can ride the trail from Tahoe to Reno, putting the project even closer to completion.

CORRECTION: Original information provided by a volunteer incorrectly stated that this section connects with Truckee’s trail system. We were notified that information is in error.
