Donner LakeRim Trail | Tim Hauserman

Tahoe National Forest’s Pines to Mines Trail connecting Truckee with Nevada City will welcome equestrians, pedestrians, bicyclists and Class 1 e-bike users on the new 72-mile trail network under development. Pines to Mines will include about 50 miles of existing trail with 22 miles of new trail planned to begin construction this year, according to a press release from USDA Forest Service.

The trail will boast miles of vistas and guide users past remote lakes, canyons and meadows. The Pines to Mines Trail will include one end of the trail at the existing Pioneer Trail in Nevada City and the other at the east end of the Donner Lake Rim Trail. There are several existing trailheads for entrance/exit along the planned 72-mile course with the potential for additional trailheads in the future. | bit.ly/pines_to_mines
