In 5 minutes you can get away from the lights and action of the the Biggest Little City and soak in the fresh green foliage along Nevada's most famous river. The river walk is a safe, relaxing respite. Grab a sack lunch from one of the wonderful mom-and-pop restaurants near downtown, and stroll along the river. East Coasters beware! The... More

We took a walk along the river after dinner. The paths are excellent and well lit and the weather was perfect. We watched an otter playing in the river-so interesting!

Heading West from the Virginia Street the walk is mostly shaded, and is quite heavily used by walkers, joggers, and runners. You can easily travel nearly 3 miles directly along the river in mostly shaded areas and parks. Heading East there is a bit less shade, but you can travel about 7 miles, once again immediately along the river trail.

This is a long, lovely and peaceful stroll along the Truckee River. Most of the path is paved and is a flat, level surface for all levels of walkers and hikers. Great exercise and fantastic scenery.

Gorgeous walk, tranquil, wonderful wildlife- snake (in river), cheeky blackbirds looking for food, ducks, trout, geese... Flat walk or cycle

The boulders that were brought in to line the river bed make wonderful stepping stones, sunning areas and seating to just enjoy watching the activity. People swim and wade here. The river was low, so there were no kayaks or tubes the day we were here. Lovely flowers and sculptures line the walk. Too bad the retail shops are not... More

Downtown Reno has been fixing itself up over the last decade. This trail has a lot of potential as an attraction but is neglected in the city center. It is a magnificent path east of Reno for 6 miles along the Truckee. Several nice parks on the north side serve as entry points for biking, walking and running. Bring plenty... More
