Very well maintained. Easy terrain. POI markers along the way and jus beautiful landscape!!!! Perfect for Bikes or walking.
Went biking with my 11 year old on 8.12.17, Saturday. We started at the trail head on the steep hill from the Truckee River Regional Park's parking lot. We rode a total of 8.36 miles downstream and back. The landscape, wildlife, countless bird species, river, and sky were a breath of fresh air for us. Segments of shady trees in between sunny spots to rest at as well as benches to sit on and take in the surrounding beauty. Bring lots of water and snacks. Highly recommended. #leaveonlyfootprints #packoutwhatyoupackin, #LoVEarth
This trail is beautiful! It runs along the Truckee river, away from roads and is a great ride for the entire family. It is fairly flat, and the Truckee river is gorgeous during this incredible spring thaw we are experiencing. There are bike rentals available in downtown Truckee at Bike Truckee.
I rode this trail today. It was in perfect shape and the views are wonderful. Suitable for any kind of bike.
Very nice ride with the exception of what I call the "Homewood Death Strip". Basically a construction project that has gone on for years, has no known end point and is dangerous to navigate. Most the trail along the lake is older bike trail, so don't expect it to be up to more modern engineering standards, but is very scenic. The trail west from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley was wonderful and modern, too bad it does not go all the way to Truckee. To do that you have to venture out on the highway with the concurrent noise and bad driving habits. Best time to go is a week after Labor Day, no crowds, very relaxing. Would give it 5 stars if it were not marred by the Homewood stretch. Town needs to get its act together.
I cycled from Jones Creek Camp Ground to Wench Creek camp ground and back.It is a fully paved trail among the trees along the water next to the reservoir. You'll pass lots of camp sites but few people on the actual trail. I saw a group of three cyclists at the end and two more on my way back. My daughter had fun riding in her trailer and the hills are tempered with just as many down slopes.
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.
In selfishness, I wouldn't write about this trail, because I wouldn't want to have to share it with anyone else. But I just have to say, riding this trail from the Placerville Station east to the end of the paved portion is a neat, tidy, beautiful workout, which you can fit into less than an hour start to end. It's only something like 4.9 miles each way, but going eastward, it probably averages about a 6% grade, I would guesstimate. It's just a pure, honest workout riding east, if you push it, and then the return trip is an excellent reward. It's a pleasure to ride on my Trek hybrid.
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.
There's easy access to the trail that goes through several abandoned tunnels. Easy walking, take a flashlight.
This is a great bike ride we try to do every year. Easy enough for the whole family. The paving is seeing some wear and it can get crowded during the busy season. Another great one is the brand new Truckee River Legacy Trail that can be accessed from downtown Truckee. Is is less crowded and is away from all roads as it follows the River down to the Glenshire subdivision.
If you are on foot from Tahoe City to Sugar Pine Point, the lake is always in view, up close and personal. Fantasize on which lakeside house or estate you'd like to own. My favorite is a small see-through A frame with loft, my dream of a convenient, low-maintenance Tahoe getaway. Spend some time walking the cross-country ski trail in summer at Sugar Pine Point. It meanders through the Ehrman Mansion property and ends at the entrance to Meeks Bay on a secluded rocky beach with a magnificent view of the peaks and points all the way to the South Shore.
