Any wheelchair or mobility device that meets both parts of the legal definition of a wheelchair (36 CFR 212.1, Forest Service Manual 2305.05 and ADA Title V, Section 508c, for use in Wilderness areas) is allowed to be used anywhere foot travel is allowed on the National Forest System. Learn more.
While most hiking and biking trails may not comfortably accommodate wheelchairs, adaptive bikes, and other mobility devices, two new state of the art dirt trails in Truckee have been specifically designed for all users: Compass Skills Loop and Ridgeline Nature Trail.
Along with these two dirt trails, the Tahoe National Forest offers hundreds of miles of scenic dirt and gravel roads for riding. Adaptive mountain bikes will be best suited for this terrain. For route ideas, check out these Truckee Tahoe Gravel courses.
