Whether you live in Reno, Carson City, Gardnerville, Sparks, Minden, Truckee, or Tahoe, our outdoor recreational assets are a major part of our quality of life, our economy, and the reason so many of us love living on the Sierra Front. We are convinced that our world-class assets including Lake Tahoe, the Truckee and Carson Rivers, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and the beautiful public lands in between, can be further enhanced by a world-class recreation and trails system..
The Sierra Front beckons visitors and residents alike to explore the Tahoe Rim Trail, fish the Carson River, bike on Peavine Mountain, ski along the crest, backpack into the Mount Rose Wilderness, hike the Donner Rim Trail, or boulder in the Desolation Wilderness. The destinations are globally famous – the vistas, waters and forests, priceless. These views and recreational opportunities are the basis for attracting new wealth, new homes, and new tourism dollars to our communities. Well-known trails such as the Pacific Crest Trail, Tahoe Rim Trail and American Discovery Trail, form the “hub” of a regional trail system that welcomes residents from our towns. These trails, and the rivers and lakes that flow through the region, form the basis of one of the most spectacular outdoor recreation areas in the West.
Also, you will find descriptive information on 22 individual outdoor recreation and adventure areas of interest and nearly 200 individual offerings with more than 345 individual internet links for even more information.
