It’s Time to Move to Truckee!!!
Truckee is an incorporated town in Nevada County, California. Just north of Lake Tahoe in the High Sierras, Truckee is a small mountain town with big energy that is loaded with plenty of things to do, including hidden gems and outdoor activities. The Truckee area was originally inhabited by the Washoe, Maidu and Paiute tribes, and then later by miners and settlers in the later 1860s. Truckee grew into a bustling mining town with plenty of wealth, excitement and debauchery to go around during the gold and silver rushes.
Today, Truckee is full of great outdoor activities, food, shopping, art and numerous other things to do. In the winter, Truckee is a consummate ski town, located just 15 minutes or so from Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl and Northstar California resorts. There are also extensive cross-country, snowshoeing and backcountry opportunities in the region, and the groomed and tracked trails at both Royal Gorge and Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center are a great place to start for novices. There is also an adorable outdoor ice skating rink right in town. Come summertime, hike and explore the historic train tunnels at Donner Summit, or get lost hiking or biking the
miles of paved paths and trails that zig-zag in and around the town. Bike Truckee is located in the heart of town, with easy access to the Truckee River Legacy Trail.
