Fishing trail with a foot path along the Truckee river as well as a dirt road along side a Canal. Abide by all posted signage regarding dangerous water areas.

A nice trail that you can see when driving on 80. This trail has signs stating it is closed due to construction on the flumes from November 15th, 2018 until March 2019. There was no one working on a Saturday, but I don't know if there is a potential of getting a ticket or towed if you decide to go for it.

Fun little trail next to the Truckee. The gate before the bridge has a latch, but not a lock. Trail doesn't get a ton of use; so in some places using the app to tell which way to go is helpful. Gorgeous views of the river.

Great fishing spot without heavy traffic. Posted sign has related fishing info. Trail is overgrown and has seen some damage by the raging waters but is still legible.
