You will love this absolutely beautiful trail. Weekends are a bit busy with both walkers and bikes but still worth it. The trail runs along Lake Tahoe and its has stunning views plus the water colors are magnificent. I highly recommend this trail for a nice walk. You can also go into the Sand Harbor park at the south end and stop for a Bloody Mary or other refreshments at their concession stand
I love this trail! Clean with beautiful scenery. Porta potty throughout the trail. Sound of the River is calming.
I rode this path with a friend recently (she’s experienced, I’m a beginner) and we both had a good time! Nicely paved, a few slight hills, and decent length.
I just got a bike and rode this path with my cycling-experienced friend. We both had a good time, explored both directions when the path forked closer to Sparks, and appreciated how well the path was maintained. Fairly flat—a little more hilly on the way back (toward S. Reno), but great overall!
This path is really conveniently located to a lot of homes along Sparks BLVD. It's short, but is a great connector to the Truckee River bike path. Also, so many ducks live along this path and they are just super fun to watch. It has a few places where the path dips down below the road level, and these can occasionally collect water. But if you're looking for a place to entertain your children with echoes, these underways are definitely the place to do it. The path is wide enough to accommodate traffic going both ways, which makes it great for walking or biking or bringing your dogs.
This is a fun and accesible trail for the family, the view at the end is lovely.
Beautiful scenic bike path
I enjoy this trail. I actually start on alt Lake Tahoe Blvd And follow the South Lake Tahoe trail all the way to the end of this trail. There are many other side roads like fallen leaf campground.
Easy trail with wide open views. Well maintained for one small area that needs some goat head bushes trimmed. Nice benches at several points to take a break. No shade, except under one bridge, so be prepared if it’s summer. We ended up on several nice bike/walk paths in housing developments on the southern end that took us back to our motel off 580. Easy For families with kiddos.
Very nicely paved well maintained with benches and trash cans along Veterans PKY and Sparks Drive.
We started at the elementary school. After having to climb through 2 gates, my bike(a trail hybrid) could not handle all the sand. 2 miles in, we decided to turn around because I was struggling. On the way back, all 4 of our bike tires went flat.
It was over grown, very awkward gates blocking the labled pathway. Lots of goat heads. So many. And the best part was we paid to do this.
It's such a beautiful trail. My only concern is that the dogs are not on leashes, they are allowed to run around freely. Yes they are adorable, playful whatever, but they have teeth!
