I do not like casinos so this walk was a welcome escape from slot machines, lights, and crowds. Very peaceful and pretty. Some homeless people on the trail so I was happy to be with a couple of friends.

A little bit of nature runs through the heart of the city. We walked here from the art museum, and met someone trout fishing. On the other side we saw a mink (or weasel, not sure which) run out of the bushes into the side stream in an attempt to grab a mallard duck for dinner. The ducks got away,... More

Just a beautiful, peaceful walk along the river from downtown Reno. View of mountains in the distance, beautiful homes on the other side of the water, little bridges to cross here and there. Couldn't have been nicer.

Well maintained path, lovely view of water & water birds. Brisk walk maybe 15 min from city centre to end & return. Lots people and feel safe walking the path.

This walk is well worth the effort. It's short and flat but very scenic. The Hub Coffee House is on the walk and is worth the stop. It has outdoor seating if the weather is good. There is a gourmet chocolate shop next door and a very nice restaurant as well. The restaurant, Beaugulais Bistro, is excellent but only open... More

Lots of scenic beauty right in town. There are some great places to eat and drink as well. This is a walk that you should do both during the day and again at night. Lots of artsy type of places to visit as well. The foliage and river change as the seasons come and go. The Truckee River is beautiful... More

We take all our out-of-town guests on this walk. It really is one of the gems of Reno. On a summer day it's great to walk along it and see tubers, rafters, kayakers, and so many people swimming and playing in the rapids. Our grandchildren love coming for a visit (from San Francisco) and going downtown to swim and play... More

Can't beat the price-free. Cool things to look at and nice places to eat and drink during the walk. Also during the warmer weather you can rent tubes or go for a raft ride.

Just steps away from downtown Reno is the beautiful Truckee river. Walking along the river in any season reminds you of the natural beauty of Reno. Find a touch of serenity in the city.
