Description

The trail starts off with a small climb to access some of the great views of the Truckee River you'll find along the way. You'll see the train pass by at times and you'll be along the freeway for a lot of the trail. There is a hanging bridge that you'll go through. Heading south (as mapped) involves a lot of climbing, but the return trip is fun and almost all downhill. The trail is mostly dirt with some parts of gravel road.

Closure signs came down today--route is officially open. And conditions are perfect: mud is mostly gone, and high water drowns out road noise.

Ride is officially closed due to construction on the flumes. But lots of bikes seem to be riding it on the weekends when the job site is shut down.
