The Tahoe-Pyramid Trail is based on a vision for a trail that would follow the entire length of the Truckee River, from its source at forested Lake Tahoe (6225′) to the desert terminus of Pyramid Lake (3796′). The current route can be traveled by foot or by bicycle, and when fully completed, will descend over 2000 feet during the entire course of the 114-mile long trail, using a combination of existing dirt and paved roads, bike paths, historic roads, as well as many new sections of trails and bridges.
Located on the east side of the Truckee River.
This loop offers some beautiful views of Lake Clementine and both the North Fork and Middle Fork American Rivers.
Five primitive campsites are located on the north side of the river on the Placer County side.
This steep trail offers great bird’s eye views of the confluence and American River canyons.
