The Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway is a vision of following the Truckee River by foot or by bicycle from its source at forested Lake Tahoe to its desert terminus, Pyramid Lake. The route will descend over 2000 feet in 116 miles, using a combination of existing dirt and paved roads, plus some sections of new trail and bridges.

TRAIL NEWS

  • The missing 2-mile trail from Farad to Fleish will go out to bid this spring and will be built in the summer!

  • The section of Bikeway continuing upriver beyond Fleish Bridge is completed and open. Thanks to all who came out and helped build this section of the trail. You can reach the finished section by taking I-80 from Verdi upriver to Farad, then turning around and driving east 2.8 miles to a large parking area. From there it is a gentle 1 mile walk upstream on the new trail.

  • The Boy Scouts did a great job finishing the soil at Mustang, so the sand pit at mile 1.5 isn't the obstacle it used to be.

  • Fleish road from Verdi to the suspension bridge is scheduled to be re-opened by mid-April
