We hired bikes for two hrs and did some of the lakeside trail then the river trail. Well signposted. Separate bike lane from cars. Not too hilly. Very enjoyable.

We made a last minute decision to take a short 1 hour walk down this trail and we spent some time on the Truckee River. We definitely want to come back next time we are in Tahoe. Biking next time!
