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 on weekends from Verdi to the suspension bridge. Please continue to avoid this area on weekdays due to utility construction.
See current site specific conditions on the "Use the Trail" pagefor 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 will go out to bid this spring and will be built in the summer!
The section of the Bikeway that starts at the west end of Quilici Ranch Road in Verdi and continues up stream to Fleish Bridge will be open to hikers and bikers for the three-day Memorial Day weekend 5/23, 5/24, and 5/25. Construction work will continue on Tuesday 5/26, and the trail will be closed to the public 5/26 through 5/29 and Mondays through Fridays for the following few weeks until the work is complete. We will continue to open the property road up to hikers and bikers each weekend.
The section of Bikeway continuing upriver beyond Fleish Bridge is completed and open. Thanks to all who came out and helped build this section of the trail.
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 1 mile walk upstream on the new trail.
The Boy Scouts did a great job finishing the soil at Mustang, so the sand pit at mile 1.5 isn't the obstacle it used to be.

Sunday May 3 will be the annual Cookie Ride, celebrating 10 years of the popular Mogul-Verdi Bike Path. This year we are having multiple start locations, with area cycling clubs, or ask your favorite bike shop to organize a group ride to Verdi. Or just come out with friends. We will have homemade cookies and lemonade at Crystal Peak Park in Verdi from 10:30 to 11:30. HOMEMADE cookies are needed, and our cookie coordinator again this year is Pat Larson, so get in touch with her about your cookie donation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
