Celebrate the progress and growth of the Truckee Trails system by going on a ride or hike along one of the many trails designed for family use and adventurous outings!
The Truckee Trails Foundation has been diligently working on a system of trails with several goals: connect people and places, reduce the community’s need on automobiles, and improve residents’ overall health, increase our economy based on recreation, and search for many types of funding to support our trail system. The Truckee Trails and Bikeways Master Plan was conceived in 2002 envisioning nearly 133 miles of trails and on-street bikeways that allowed Truckee to have town-wide connectivity.
