Because of this dedication to people and dogs, even Downtown Truckee dog walks are the perfect choice to get outside, breathe in fresh air, and have an enjoyable stroll with your pup. From paved walkways that are maintained even in winter to a 62-acre regional park, you and your dog will find the perfect amount of exercise. Grab your frisbee and your dog's leash and get ready to head out right from the heart of downtown.
Most of the other trails accessible from downtown are dirt or natural. Though the paths are well worn, you may still encounter roots, rocks, sand, and uneven terrain. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes, bring water for you and your dog, and always carry a map so you know where you are going. While going for a dog walk in Downtown Truckee it's important to remember that you are still in the mountains. Storms can happen fast in the summer, making the ground slick and muddy in just a few minutes, and the winter brings lots and lots of snow. Always be prepared for the season and weather during any dog walk.
You can also easily access the Truckee River Regional Park just a half-mile from downtown. This 62-acre park offers plenty of family fun including ballparks, a nature trail, and access to the Truckee River Legacy Trail. In the summer, dogs are required to be on-leash at all times, and families often bring the family dog along to baseball, football, and soccer games. In the winter dogs are welcome to be off leash as long as they are under voice control.
