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 from Verdi to the suspension bridge is now open 7 days a week until August!

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 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 upstream to Fleish Bridge will be closed to the public Monday through Friday until construction 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.
