Tom Cooke Trail

Difficult
 2.0 (2)

A good way to access the Steamboat Ditch Trail, but the southeast section of the trail is steep, eroded, and difficult.

Need to Know

You can easily jump onto the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway: Sparks to Verdi by not crossing the bridge, and following the paved path a short distance along the river from the trailhead to Mayberry Park.

Or, you can cross the bridge and immediately turn left to follow a path along the river.

Description

You would think that this is a private trail for Patagonia employees, since it departs from the bridge crossing the Truckee River just outside their front door!

The trail is a great connector to the Steamboat Ditch Trail, which runs for over 40 miles through the foothills above Reno. If you ride the Tom Cooke Trail uphill, expect some pushing at first: the departure is steep, eroded, and probably unrideable. If you decide to ride it downhill, the descent of this section will be challenging but doable.
