Bike to do Map

If your new to Tahoe and have a bike, this route will take you from South shore over to Nevada and back again. It makes for a great way to tour the area and familiarize yourself with so many points of interest, locals drive this route every single day, day in and day out. There are countless places to stop and poke around along the way, so take your time and enjoy.

This is a great trail for someone looking for an easy hike with beautiful scenery. While the main trail is paved with a lot of bike use, there is a large section where you can get over and hike along the river on a dirt trail. Just look for side trail off the main trail to access that portion. We parked at the Riverview Sports Park which had ample parking and bathrooms. This trail is relatively flat, perfect for people who are still adjusting to the altitude.

Mostly flat, paved trail along the gorgeous Truckee River with scenic vistas of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range in every direction. It was a very enjoyable stroll. We will walk it again next time we’re visiting

Very nice trail but over half of the people we encountered with dogs did not have them leashed. When you are biking the trail they run in front of your path creating a hazard.

Not that there is zero shade, but there is less shade than most of the trails around. It is a nice wide paved path. Rolling hills except for the Glenshire end of the trail. Heavy traffic most of the late spring and summer.

beautiful ride with a good climb at the end.

Well cared for trail. Beautiful area! We enjoyed this trail.

Beautiful fall walk along side the Truckee River!

Great paved trail for a long walk. Semi steep in the beginning. Great for walking dogs on leash

Great trail. Some awesome views. Super easy Trail is pathed the whole time.

Looking for an easy river walk? This is a pleasant one. Walking with dogs, look for your first opportunity to get off the blacktop and follow the path close to the river which starts about ~100 yards east of the foot bridge.

Great views!

not a hiking route.

Don't do this hike without a bike. All except the last mile is highway and city streets. Do China Cove instead.

A well-maintained trail with 3 different water fill-up stations. 1 at the sports park, 1 at the lower level bbq grassy area, and 1 at the regional park at the end. Great for bicyclists or avid joggers. If you go to each detour you will reach 6 miles 1 way

Great easy trail

Description says no dogs but that is not correct. You can do dogs on leash. Northshore side has a lot of vehicle traffic so can loud and dirty.

Nice morning run around the lake. I hugged the inside track going counterclockwise. It was nice coming off the road into the Donner park but then tricky getting back on the road. I cut through the Donner Beach Club which is private and fenced in. Next time I'll stay wide of that property and add the extra 0.1 miles or so.

I actually love hiking around Donner Lake multiple times a year. I'll drive 2 hours to hike it.

Great bike path trail for a nice relaxed walk or run or bike ride. It's a paved path. Smooth service and very clean with lots of benches and picnic tables along the path. Plenty of dog doodoo stations as well.
