This is a perfect trail for riding! It has great scenery and the smell of pines, hmm. My mom and I had so much fun biking this trail, and I believe it connects to more trails too.
Nice & flat for most part. Open & healthy forest. No trash; well used & loved but affords plenty of solitude.
A beautiful trail close to Truckee. As others have mentioned wear good hiking shoes as the 2nd half of the trail is rocky.
This was a mild trail with a very gentle incline but beware of mountain bikers that frequent the trail in the warmer months, especially around sudden corners. Wear good shoes as the second half of the trail is very rocky and is hard on the feet.
