Emigrant Trail to Alder Creek (Truckee)

On this snowshoe adventure, we decided to take a more groomed and easy route to build back up our confidence. A friend had recently explored the area, so we made our way to Truckee and did a portion of the Emigrant Trail. It was beautiful, pretty flat (compared to the last one!!) and dog-friendly.

Length: ~6 miles (3 hours)

Good for: anyone … beginners, dogs, kids, etc.

Other notes: parking can be tricky in the snow. We did the reverse route and parked at the end.
