Ride the river path along the Truckee or down the West shore or even check out the newer bike path on Dollar Hill through the forest.

If you are looking for family friendly hikes, unbelievable views or cool mountain lakes to swim in, Tahoe and Truckee hiking has you covered. Lake Tahoe is famous for its stunning mountain tops and expensive hiking trails. I have compiled a list of the must visit peaks in the region. The Lake Tahoe region has many pristine alpine lakes to enjoy in the warm summer months besides the famous Lake Tahoe.
Rafting the Truckee River from Tahoe City to River Ranch is a Tahoe summer tradition. It is a leisurely float along a peaceful stretch of the Truckee River. You can either float the river on innertubes and pool floaties, or rent a commercial grade raft on a self-guided raft trip. Truckee River raft experience takes approximately 2-3 hours so bring a small cooler with snacks and drinks (please no Styrofoam or glass and pack out your trash). Rafting the Truckee is fun for all ages (2 years and up) and sure to be a fun, family memory to have for years to come.
