Between Lake Tahoe and Truckee, California

The Truckee River has four distinct sections. First there is the small mountains stream that flows into the south end of Lake Tahoe. The second, larger one, runs from the lake to the town of Truckee. Below that the river is deep in a canyon flanked by Interstate 80 and the railroad to Reno, and the final stretch follows another canyon east to the desert and eventually into Pyramid Lake.

A well engineered bike path follows the Truckee River from the Lake Tahoe to Truckee through beautiful mountain scenery. In the warmer months, if water flow is sufficient, tubing and kayaking are popular on this stretch.
