BIG CHIEF TRAIL
The Truckee Trails Foundation is working with the USFS and Northstar on the alignment for a proposed 7-mile non-motorized trail connecting the southern tip of the Sawtooth Trail down to Watson Lake and the Tahoe Rim Trail. With some funding already in hand, we will begin construction when the snow melts in 2018.
EMIGRANT TRAIL RE-ROUTE AND BRIDGES
In cooperation with the USFS, The Truckee Trails Foundation is completing a major re-route and restoration effort on the Upper Emigrant Trail along Alder Creek. So far this has included over 500 crew hours and 275 volunteer hours. The resulting trail will be more user friendly and environmentally sustainable.
PINES TO MINES TRAIL
In 2017 The Truckee Trails Foundation completed 30% design on the 22-mile unconstructed section of the proposed Pines to Mines Trail, which is now awaiting USFS feedback. This project also involves working closely with project partners in western Nevada County (Bicyclists of Nevada County, Bear Yuba Land Trust, and Gold Country Trails Council).
The Truckee Trails Foundation has neared completion of this trail that connects Northstar with Waddle Ranch trails. A project on land owned by the Truckee Donner Land Trust, TTF raised $50,000 to build the Middle Martis Creek bridge and fund both mechanized and hand construction by our trail crew. This project also included over 400 volunteer hours.
