hidden gem near the strip

I didn't even know this existed, and it was a nice break from the casino's on the strip. Quite a few restuarants over looking the Truckee River and it was just a nice little walk... read more

The river is kind of dirty and a man was actually going to the bathroom behind a tree, not standing up. It could have been nice but the litter and the onslaught of homeless begging for money was scary as they are very aggressive. Even my spouse keep telling me to hurry along and avoid eye contact. I'm not against... More

Easy stroll but it is a walk in a urban area. We headed down to the walk on the day we arrived in Reno and gave us a nice feel for the city. Lots of bikers, walkers, families during our Sunday afternoon stroll. We were in city to enjoy hiking and outdoor activities so enjoyed the views and the opportunity... More

Reno generally shows signs of struggling as the gambling industry continues to give way to many competitive factors. The "river walk" is pleasant enough with its modern style setting of white stone. However, the unclean "drug types" rend the entire experience kind of on the "edgy" side.

The Truckee river walk is just a few blocks away from the casinos in the downtown district. Though the water level was low when we visited it still was a nice picturesque walk.

Walking, running, or biking along the Truckee River Walk is the perfect way to enjoy The Biggest Little City any day and in all seasons! The beauty of nature flowing through an urban area is inspiring! You will encounter just a little bit of everything on your adventure....natural beauty, Northern Nevada flora & fauna, art, pop culture, great architecture-old &... More

One of my favorite things about my visit - a morning walk along a safe and scenic trail/path. The path wound along the Truckee River from downtown and you got to see a lot of Reno you would not normally see - parks, quaint neighborhoods and people out enjoying the day.

whenever I go to Reno, I plan on hiking down the Truckee River walk several miles from downtown Reno and back. Safe, pleasant and a quiet, peaceful walk. Pretty in winter with snow on trees, and great in spring with new growth and flowers on trees. an absolute must!
