It's a paved trail that's more that lightly trafficked. We took the trail with our two kids and German Shepherd and instead of looking at the scenery we had to constantly pay attention to bikes so we could move out of their way.

Was an easy walk with paved trail. Was a good starter walk to get vacationers acclimated to the altitude.

The Truckee River Bike Trail is a nice casual walking path. It does get warm in the late morning in July. There are many cycllists on the path so make sure you follow the rules.

The trail is right next to the highway. Good views of the river. Lots of biking traffic. Maybe best just to bike it.
