Explore a different trail every day in Truckee. The majority of the area surrounding Truckee is managed by the Tahoe National Forest, which means your dog is welcome to just about any of the trails. Depending on how much time you have, there are quick jaunts to full-day excursions to pick from. Enjoy a hike or ride together at Sawtooth Trails, Donner Rim Trail, or the Emigrant Trail. Donner Memorial State Park welcomes dogs on leash. If you want to mix a little doggie paddle with your hike, consider hitting up the Pacific Crest Trail between Sugar Bowl and Boreal.
Truckee also has 26+ miles of scenic paved trails for a dog walk, run, or hike, all of which invite your pup to tag along! These dog-friendly trails have poop bag stations and trash receptacles along the way to help keep the trail clean. As a bonus, over 20 miles of Truckee's paved trails are plowed in winter and free of snow.
