Event description


Come get a scenic view of the beautiful Truckee Canyon, different from the one you usually see as you travel back and forth on I-80 from Truckee to Reno. Located on the opposite side of the Truckee River from the Interstate, this hike includes a fun walk over the Fleish suspension bridge, which sways and bounces as you travel across it, an interesting water diversion and a view of River Rock, a popular climbing spot for Reno and Truckee's climbing communities.

Hike Details:

The hike is an out-and-back hike for about 7 miles on a nice dirt trail almost continuously in view of Truckee River. There is approximately 150 feet of elevation change. Note that there is road noise on some parts of the hike. Please be out of your vehicle and ready to hike at the time set for the hike to begin.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

From Truckee:

Take I-80 East toward Reno to the Farad exit (exit 201). The road after exiting is called Mystic Road. There is some parking at the trailhead but carpooling is encouraged. Meet your group at the locked Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway Trail signed locked gate.

From Reno:

Take I-80 West toward Truckee to the Farad exit (exit 201). Bear right onto Mystic Road. Take the ramp left and follow the signs for I-80 East. Follow the directions from Truckee above.

How strenuous is the hike?

This hike is a fairly easy, mostly level 7 mile hike along a dirt trail through forested and sunny patches. The route is shared with bike traffic.

What should I bring to the event?

Please wear closed toe shoes and bring bug spray, sunscreen, water, and snacks you'll need for our outing. Depending on the weather, you may need sun protection (hat/glasses) or rain gear or cold weather gear.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Are there restrooms available?

No. Please come prepared to use the woods off the trail as necessary.

Can I bring my dog on the hike?

No. Pets will not be allowed on any of the group hikes. We kindly ask that you please leave your pets at home. Your canine companion is welcome at every Land Trust property that is currently open to the public. Please visit for recommendations.
