Trails (just to name a few)

Donkey Town Trail - Formerly known as "Jackass", this trail is a Truckee classic! Rated as an intermediate trail, this trail is sure to please anyone with berms, drops, jumps, gaps, and ride arounds for all of the above!

Donner Lake Rim Trail - There's lots of different ways you can ride this epic trail depending on whether you want to pedal, shuttle, or both! This trail has it all - technical rock climbs, fast and flowy descents, snack breaks at a lake, and endless views in every direction. We can pick the best sections of this trail for you depending on your desires!

Emigrant Trail - This is a great trail for beginners! Lacking in difficult climbs or technical downhills, this trail consists of mostly flowy single-track and can take you all the way to Stampede Reservoir!
