Squaw Valley Park is located at the entrance of Olympic Valley, offering visitors a wide array of year-round recreational opportunities. There’s a soccer field, playground, pickle ball courts, picnic areas, bike and hiking trails.

 

 

From the park, in addition to travelling the Squaw Valley Bike Path, you can also connect to the longer Truckee River Trail that travels 7 miles into Tahoe City, paralleling Highway 89 along the Truckee River corridor. It’s scenic and has mostly gentle slopes with some steep sections.

Trail Overview: This 2-mile (one-way) asphalt trail, separated from the roadway, runs moderately uphill through Squaw Valley to the ski resort where you can enjoy a spacious pedestrian village with a variety of stores and restaurants. Along the trail you will enjoy views of an expansive grassy meadow with tall peaks rising in the background some 3,000-feet from the valley floor. Interpretive signs along the route describe landmarks, plants, and animals. It can be busy with cyclist’s, people walking dogs and hikers.

For the last .2-miles you’ll share the road with vehicles. Alternatively, to reach the village you can avoid the road by rerouting thru the first Squaw Valley parking lot.

More Info: There is a short steep hill by the Post Office (about 1.8-mile out) but for an easier route you can move to the bike lane in the road for about 200 feet.
