Trestle Tours

Trestle Tours are guided, self driven tours of old railroad lines of the area. See old grade, ties, rail, logging camp sites, and even trestles! At each stop, the significance of the railroad its history is discussed. At some stops, there are short hikes along old grade. Exploration is encouraged! Mostly it is an enjoyable few hours in the beautiful Truckee area talking about whatever comes up.

 

Trestle Tours will return in the summer of 2016
