Truckee Springs trail access progressing

Truckee Donner Land Trust

Truckee Donner Land Trust and Town of Truckee are making progress on the extension of the Truckee River Legacy Trail, a paved multiuse trail. The goal is to have both the new segment of trail and the pedestrian bridge to access the recently purchased Truckee Springs area completed by the end of next summer, according to the Land Trust. Truckee Springs spans a section of land running along the Truckee River across from South River Street in downtown to near Highway 89.

Fencing has been installed around a wildlife habitat in a cottonwood stand next to the river to protect the area and ensure local fauna can remain undisturbed when Truckee Springs is opened to the public. Once the trail is constructed, there are also plans to build trails to access different parts of the 67-acre property, including some river access. |
