we took this trail specifically to bike. It is right next to the road, so being aware of that is important. despite that, it is beautiful along the river and there are places to stop and enjoy the view. I would not recommend this for walkers/hikers. It is pretty dominated by bikes and the path isn't super wide. if you jog or run you can keep up with the flow. it was just workable enough for our six year old to handle on his bike, although being on part of the busy road due to construction gave us some pause.

This is the longer option for those interested in taking in some of Tahoe City, the lake, and both the Truckee River and Squaw Valley bike trail systems. It's a great ride! You go through town a bit then head over the dam and downriver taking in the splendid sites of the Truckee River. Eventually we came to the Squaw Valley entrance and continued up to the ski resort where a jeep race was mustering. It was cool, an all-women event, racing jeeps overland and back country down to San Diego. You return the same way.

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.
