In 2012, the Town of Truckee adopted the updated Truckee Trails and Bikeways Master Plan, which provides detailed guidelines for the development of over 130 miles of trails and bikeways within the Town. The plan identifies the Truckee River Legacy Trail as a high priority trail. When complete, the Truckee River Legacy Trail will connect the Donner Memorial State Park to the Glenshire neighborhood. The majority of the route will parallel the Truckee River.

There are several interpretive signs along the trail. Click here to view those that are available. 

Truckee River Legacy Trail Phases 1, 2 and 3A

Phase 1 and 2 of the Truckee River Legacy Trail was completed in the summer of 2009. This segment links the Truckee Regional Park to the Riverview Sports Park, with connections to East River Street and Ranch Way. Phase 3A connects Phase 2 at the Riverview Sports park to an overlook to an historic site just west of the TTSA plant and was completed in 2010.

Truckee River Legacy Trail Phase 3B

Phase 3B of the Truckee River Legacy Trail connects Phase 3A to the Glenshire Subdivision. Over 2 miles of trail travel from the existing Phase 3A trail, between the Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency Waste Water Treatment Plant and the Truckee River, across Martis Creek, up the talus slope, along an existing utility access road, and to Glenshire Drive. The trail travels south of the Truckee River through property owned by the USFS, Tahoe-Truckee Sanitation Agency, and Town of Truckee.
