Upper Truckee River Out-and-Back Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This ride is an easy meander along the peaceful Upper Truckee River. Enjoy narrow paths through grassy meadows near the river’s edge and forested trails along the upper banks. Wildflowers and views of the surrounding peaks add to the flavor of this short trek. The ride starts next to the site of the weekend Tahoe Flea Market and ends across the river from the Lake Tahoe Airport. There are many side trails to the river and adjoining neighborhood along the way. Wear your swimsuit on this ride, and take a dip when the weather’s warm. Just beyond the turnaround point is a maze of trails between the Upper Truckee River and Pioneer Trail. The locals have their own routes through this undeveloped slice of national forest. Explore these trails with a local guide or a keen sense of adventure."
