In 2015, the Town of Truckee adopted the updated Truckee Trails and Bikeways Master Plan, which provides detailed guidelines for the development of over 35 miles of paved trails (Class I) and 60 miles of bike lanes (Class II) 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.
