Truckee, California is an outdoor loving town in the heart of the mountains, so expect most of the trails to be natural and wind their way through a variety of terrain. The town has established several miles of multi-use walking and biking trails that follow along the Truckee River and offer non-motorized travel for commuters and recreationists. Though this trail system is mostly paved, it still has several challenging hills.

The trail system that surrounds Truckee will get you out into an incredible wilderness, and will surely make your heart pound. Most of these trails are maintained by the forest service and are dirt paths with plenty of natural obstacles including rocks, roots, rivers, and wildlife. Make sure you bring a map, plenty of water and snacks for you and your dog, and wear appropriate footwear and gear. You'll never know what you might encounter, so always be prepared and watch the local weather reports.

For a quick jaunt out with your dog, head for the Martis Creek Trail just a few miles from Truckee. This trail is popular with dog walkers, hikers, and mountain bikers so expect to make a few friends. The first part of this trail follows Martis Creek and is pretty level, perfect for warming up the muscles while your dog takes a dip in the creek. Martis Creek Trail soon meets up with Thompkins Memorial Trail for a three-mile loop of moderate intensity. Enjoy the easy walk back to the car while your pup takes a final cool-off in the creek.

For a real mountain experience without too much hiking, you can take your dog on a gondola at NorthStar, a four-season resort just outside of Truckee. For the cost of a lift ticket, you can catch a ride up the lift and have access to beautiful ridge trails in the blink of an eye.
