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.

* * * * * Fleish Bridge * * * *
Fleish Road is now open! Watch for ice in the deep shaded spots. Don't forget that you can now continue over three miles beyond the suspension bridge on our new trail section.

See current site specific conditions on the "Use the Trail"
page for the section you are going to visit,
as there are often temporary closures or repairs that may affect your ride.


  • The missing 2-mile trail from Farad to Fleish is 90% complete, but not quite connected on the upstream end. Look for a 2016 opening!

  • The section of Bikeway continuing upriver beyond Fleish Bridge is completed and open. 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 3 mile walk upstream on the new trail.

  • The trail at McCarran Ranch has been re-routed by the Nature Conservancy, so keep a lookout for signs.
