Walk, Run, Ride
Old Meyers Road
Turn right on Hwy 50 & turn right on South Upper Truckee Road, then turn right on Meyers Road for a steep walk with fantastic mountain views from the top. This is great exercise and not for the faint at heart! A steep road takes you up up up to the top of Echo Summit if you have the strength to keep going. Or, just take it up as far as you like, and enjoy the stretch on the way downhill!
South Upper Truckee
Turn right on Hwy 50 & turn right on South Upper Truckee Road, which goes through Christmas Valley residential area (6 miles) and ends at a nice spot along the Truckee River where you can stop for a picnic or just take in the view, or you can even go further into Desolation Wilderness from that point if you like.
Walk Along The Truckee River
Go past South Upper Truckee Road and into the next entrance for river access.
