Paved trail running from the trail head at GLENSHIRE DR to the Truckee River Regional Park. Moderate inclines and smooth path make this a great ride with views of the Truckee river and High Sierra crest. Trail features interpretive signs, tables and benches. This is a beautiful path. This path is paved with some incline. It is mostly good for WHEELCHAIRs or beginner bikers.

We hiked there Memorial Day weekend and there were so many bicycles that it was dangerous for us and our dog. We turned around after walking maybe about a mile and went to another trail instead. Interesting history about the ice making companies. We saw a train going by. The views are awesome, snow on the mountains. Not a lot of shade and the road was paved so it could get hot.

This was a nice trail and paved which was nice for our toddlers and stroller. Lots of dogs off leash, which is fine; just be aware of you have little ones who are shy.

A nice little change from the trail hiking. It's nice to have a paved trail right along the river, and a peaceful walk.

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.

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.

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
