A 5.5 mile hike to Meiss Cabin is where the PCT and TYT routes join. The Big Meadow north and south trailheads are less than 5 miles from the home. The South Upper Truckee Road Trailhead is located at the end of the South Upper Truckee Road in Meyers. It is a paved road to the trailhead and is maintained year-round. The unofficial hub of mountain bike activity in South Shore is just 1.5 miles out the back door. This area has a high density of trails for all ability levels, and will keep almost anyone interested for hours. You will find everyone out there having fun, from people in body armor and downhill bikes to families with kids, to XC racers riding intervals. During the summer, depending on the water level, there is rafting on the South Upper Truckee river. As the Upper Truckee flows towards the lake, it becomes more gentle. The river flows through the Lake Tahoe Golf Course, and often you will see tubing on the river there. Points for entry include the Highway 50 bridge near South Upper Truckee Blvd, and the Highway 50 bridge at Sawmill Road.
