Truckee River, CA is Lake Tahoe’s only outlet. Truckee River homes line the river banks from it’s origin in Tahoe City to Truckee. The river runs north of Tahoe City along HWY 89 passing Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley along the way. Truckee River is most famous for rafting, and in the summer it is filled with frolicking rafters. Commercial rafting available, but you can also bring your own raft and launch at 64 Acres in Tahoe City. Long bike path along the shore is also a favorite summer pastime. Truckee River real estate is conveniently nestled in between all the major towns and attractions in the Sierras, and has this beautiful river as the backdrop. Truckee River homes start in $190Ks for a leased land cabin and go up to $4M for a multi-acre estate. For those that don’t desire seclusion and mountain living that the Truckee River properties have to offer, the river flows right through downtown Truckee, also, and some old Victorian river homes can be found starting in $500Ks range.
