Breath taking views. Mountains, valleys, bike trails etc. One of the most beautiful places in the world. A place you should visit at least once.

There are road constructions going on, which makes the whole city look ugly. Also, because the construction, some of the street parking are not available, and that causes inconvenience to access the nearby stores.

These trails extend along the Truckee River from Squaw Valley to Tahoe City and then South along the west shore of Lake Tahoe following Highway 89. These rails are not maintained for bikes and only work well for pedestrians. The path is very narrow to be shared by bikes and foot traffic. Most of the people walking have NO idea... More

A gorgeous, paved trail along Truckee River, very popular for biking, walking, blading for ALL AGES! And it's wheelchair friendly! Every time in Tahoe, my wife and I always like to take an 8+ Mike, leisure walk here along the river. This trail is several miles long, partially shaded; along the beautiful, flowing Truckee River. The most popular section to... More

Very well maintained bike trails along the Truckee River with beautiful views of the river and surrounding mountains, cabins, and trees. Many users, runners, walkers, and bikers mostly all very courteous. We rode from our hotel in downtown Tahoe City almost all the way to Squaw Valley and back. You will ride past the River Ranch where you can stop... More

The paved bike trail from the Highway 89 "Y" intersection in Tahoe City to Squaw Valley (passing River Ranch about a mile before Squaw) is a very easy bike along the Truckee River. You can continue past Squaw, paralleling Highway 89, but it is not as pastorla or safe as the trail between the two towns. You can stop at... More
