Here is the latest report on the status of trails in Truckee

Donner Lake Rim Trail

DL Rim trail is perfect right now. Gorgeous views of now capped peaks and Donner Lake make it a challenge to keep your eye on the trail! You can ride all the way to Drifter Hut located within the Tahoe Donner XC trail system. The trial is tacky and perfect!

Sawtooth Trail

The Forest service is out there doing some clearing, so watch for heavy machinery and signs. Several of the trails are closed, and we came across several downed trees. There are some new additions to Happy Face that have fun gaps and berms and drop you in higher up, it is a new trail so it is soft in a few areas. Pay attention to the signs and be careful, you don't want to get hit by a flying log!

Emigrant Trail

Emigrant trail is prime right now! The trail is slightly tacky and the views of the snow capped mountains are gorgeous! There is a bit of snow on the north facing slopes but nothing that you can't get through, you can make it all the way to Prosser reservoir. Making this a great option for a long ride (about 17miles round trip). Get out and enjoy it before it gets dusty!

Jackass Trail

Jackass is a fun flow trail that is in fabulous riding condition. This short loop has lots of fun flow features and can get you on your game for jumping gaps and sending over jumps. Jackass is a shorter loop, about 45 min. of riding so many people opt to do a few laps. Jackass has become a very popular trail, so remember your trail etiquette and enjoy the ride!
