Truckee to Glenshire Bike Path
A Bike Trail, called the Truckee River Legacy Trail has been in the works for sometime that would connect the Downtown Truckee area to Glenshire, which is a subdivision of Truckee 6 miles North from the Downtown area.
Currently, the Bike Trail is still in the works. The Truckee Trails Foundation has been working with the Town of Truckee, the Legacy Trail Foundation and the Rotary Club of Truckee, to secure appropriate alignments and necessary easements for a paved trail to Glenshire, and for critical links between the Regional Park and downtown Truckee as part of the planning and approval process for the proposed Hilltop development.
