    Trails near Jackson Meadows Reservoir??

    I'm camping at Jackson Meadows this weekend and would love to find a ride that I could do from the campground there or a very short drive away. Truckee is about an hour away I'm told. there's got to be something around - anyone know of something nearby or northeast of Truckee?

    If nothing else - how about a friendly shop in truckee for trail advice?

    thanks!

    Truckee/Tahoe City has great trails. Grouse Ridge is close by and has fantastic riding if you like the technical stuff. As for Truckee LBS, try the Backcountry:

    You can find some maps here:

    Do you have Google Earth? Check out this route. Start at Carr > Penner > Sawmill > Grouse Ridge Trail back to Carr:

    Or you can view the route in Google Maps:
