Truckee to Glenshire Bike Path

A Bike Trail, called the Truckee River Legacy Trail connects the Downtown Truckee area to Glenshire, which is a subdivision of Truckee six miles North of the Downtown area.

The Truckee Trails Foundation worked 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 Truckee River Regional Park and downtown Truckee as part of the planning and approval process for the proposed Hilltop development.
