Truckee River Legacy Trail

The Truckee River Legacy Trail is a 5-mile long paved pathway that follows alongside the Truckee River from the Truckee River Regional Park to Glenshire Drive. The trail has a branch that reaches to the Riverview Sports Park and a bridge that crosses the river to access East River Street. The trail is paved the entire route and has no street crossings.

Most of the trail travels through the natural areas with scrub brush and evergreen trees. The far east end has a bit of a climb and some switchbacks to reach the neighborhoods along Glenshire Drive.
