TRUCKEE, Calif. — Truckee Trails Foundation thankful

The Truckee Trails Foundation has much to be thankful for this year! We want to extend our thanks to the following people/organizations: The Town of Truckee for its efforts with the Truckee River Legacy Trail (commenced construction of the segment to Glenshire!), the Brockway Road Trail (completed this month!), and the amazing new bike lanes on Glenshire Drive (with the other half to be completed next year); The boards of the Glenshire Resident's Association and Tahoe Donner Association for their critical votes to support trails in our community; Our amazing trail crew, who worked on our area's dirt trails 40 hours a week this season, making significant progress in keeping these trails safe and sustainable.

Thank you Joe, Rob, and Wyndham! Kevin Starr, our fearless volunteer crew leader who led countless volunteers, together contributing to healthier trails for us all. And a special thank you goes to employees of Northstar California (especially the Specialty Sports Venture Group), and the Truckee River Watershed Council who all volunteered time to help us complete the Stockrest Springs Trail this summer. It's finally done!

Last but definitely not least, our work on local dirt trails would not be possible without our steadfast partners – the United States Forest Service and Truckee Donner Land Trust, and without critical funding from both the Vail Resorts Echo Program, the Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation, and the Specialty Sports Venture Group. It's been a great year for trails.

If anyone is interested in working on trails or being part of the trails renaissance in Truckee, please contact allison@truckeetrails.org.
