Responsible Hirschdale Recreation Access

Truckee River Running Through Hirschdale

During the COVID-19 pandemic, recreation impacts along the Truckee River in Hirschdale reached all-time highs, including litter, camping, human waste, and trespassing on private property. At least one private property owner has decided enough is enough and has installed gates limiting access to the river via his land. Supervisor Bullock and County staff have gathered feedback from interested parties and formed a working group to find resolution.
