It's paved, relatively flat, with beautiful vistas all seasons of the year. It's not crowded and there is street parking. Bring your kids or leashed dog, even bike ride and swim or flyfish in warmer months. My only criticism of the walkway is the homeless encampments at various places which the city tries to keep in check.

Okay, first of all, if you are from around the Mississippi River, or east of it . . . you will laugh at the fact that we even call the Truckee a river. It will look more like a creek to you. But in the desert, we flock to any water we can get, and here in Reno, we do... More

While in Reno, use some free time to walk along the Truckee River to rest from the 'casino scene'. It's good for couples, friends, business travelers, families or just go to explore on your own. Depending on the time of the year, you may be taking part in charity events that fill the river of color, exhibitions, kayak competitions, food... More

Lovely. The Truckee River was really running and we watch kayak practice on the "rapids". Parking is a little dicey so take the first place you find. Walking to the river is an easy stroll.

Unexpected connection with nature at the center of Reno. Many miles of walking trails that follow the Truckee river and nearby lakes.

Beautiful walk, but there are also bums in the downtown Reno area. I enjoy watching the waterfowl sand kayakers and stopping at Java Jungle for coffee.

my husband and I took a nice little stroll along the river this afternoon. Beautiful scenery with places along the path to have coffee or a bite to eat.

Somewhat boring, but it may be more lively in the summer (I went in the winter). The coolest part was being where Marilyn Monroe once stood...I suppose :) Thats about it.

Wonderful to be able to stroll along the Truckee River in the sun through downtown Reno. Beautifully sculpted shoreline with large rocks for sitting and watching the waterfowl play in the river. Lovely break from the bustle of casinos!

This is a nice walk by the river, just not what we were expecting. The brochures make it seem like it is a shopping and dining area, but we didn't exactly come across much. That said if you want time away from the casinos this walk is a calming break!
