Visiting Truckee-Tahoe? Take the Traveler Responsibility Pledge to become a smart, safe, and respectful traveler. Together, with your help, we can ensure our natural environment stays in pristine condition for generations to come. Everyone that takes the pledge will be entered into a weekly giveaway for the chance to win a custom Leave No Trace Deuter Dirtbag.


Become a Steward of Truckee-Tahoe

We all have a responsibility to take care of the special places we love. As a visitor, you can become a steward of Truckee-Tahoe by exploring responsibly, adhering to trailhead signage, taking part in voluntourism, packing out what you pack in, sharing your local voice, and shopping local to support small businesses.

Respect the Environment

Tread lightly, take nothing but photos and leave only footprints. There are many ways to respect the environment, but most important is to Leave No Trace and Recreate Responsibly. Pack out everything you pack in, stay on the trail to avoid trampling sensitive plants, pick up after pets and dispose of trash in designated waste bins.

Stay Educated

Planning ahead is safe and smart, so know before you go! Read the daily Truckee Travel Alert and check current weather and road conditions. A little preparation goes a long way for an enjoyable visit and memorable experiences.

Keep Wildlife Wild

The best way to enjoy Truckee-Tahoe wildlife is from a distance - it keeps them wild and us safe. Never, ever feed wildlife or leave food items unattended. A wild animal that gets a taste of human food can become dangerous and bold. Observe wildlife respectfully, be bear aware, and secure your food to keep wildlife wild.

Be Fire Safe

You can help prevent wildfires! Campfire bans are in effect and during a Red Flag Warning, no open flames are allowed. Check the daily Truckee Travel Alert for more details and read our Visitor's Guide to Wildfire Season to learn how to be safe, prepared and ready for wildfire.

Demonstrate Mindful Travel

Mindful travel comes in a variety of flavors. It can be a kind smile towards others, patience while driving on a busy road, or the decision to stay home when you are feeling ill. Being present and kind during your visit can have a positive impact the community and other travelers.

Win a Leave No Trace Deuter Dirtbag

We're giving away a custom Leave No Trace Deuter Dirtbag every week! This small roll-top vessel is perfect for packing out trash whether you're hiking on backcountry trails or having a picnic at the Donner Lake docks. Lightweight and packable, it easily fits into any bag - a must have LNT accessory for outdoor adventures.
