Over the past 12 years, Truckee Trails Foundation's advocacy has worked to ensure new developments contain safe, connected, and publicly available trails, that bike lanes be on our city, county, and state roads and highways, and to find creative ways to fund local bike paths--we have made things happen.
We maintain strong partnerships with local governments, HOAs, and local non-profits and have built a reputation as a successful advocate for trails
Our region’s trail system is in progress and TTF plays a vital role in the planning and prioritization of needed trails. We have been heavily involved in every revision of the Truckee Trails & Bikeways Master Plan. We also assist with other trails master planning processes, including a current project with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District.
In the world of dirt, our full-time seasonal trail crew has maintained more than 600 miles of our area’s best singletrack over the past three years – keeping them in safe and sustainable condition. We also hold five volunteer trail crew days each summer, enabling our members and trail users to give a little love to their favorite trails.Together our volunteers alone have maintained more than 100 miles since the program began.
Since the Truckee Trails Foundation was established, over $24 million in trails and bikeways have been built in our community, including:
17 miles of Class 1 bike paths
13 miles of Class 2 bike lanes
32 miles of Class 3 bike routes
