Truckee River Trail – This biking and walking trail begins in Tahoe City on the western edge of town. There’s a nice parking lot for trail users. The trail heads west, as you might guess, following the Truckee River. You pass the River Ranch Lodge and Alpine Meadows Road before crossing over the river and reaching a point where you can cross over Highway 89 into Squaw Valley. The path continues another 2.3 miles to the Squaw Valley Ski resort and village. Perfect place to stop for a snack before heading back.
