Alum Creek is a
Truckee River tributary. It runs down
along the Juniper Trails greenway at Caughlin Ranch and
Betsy Caughlin Donnelly Park and the
historic ranch house, before reaching the Truckee River.
The picture shows Alum Creek's final stretch north of Mayberry Drive.
A paved trail alongside the creek connects the park & ranch house with the Truckee River: this trail meets the Schiappacasse River Pathway. The latter is a short section of the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway between Crissie Caughlin Park and the Edgewater Parkway/Riverhaven Avenue junction.
