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.

This is by far one of the "Best of" the Reno area...a nice walk day and night in all seasons, plus there are a TON of restaurants and "artsy" things to see and do in the area...It is the center piece of Reno in the summer when it hosts outdoor concerts and the now famous Artown in July!

We were in Reno when it was cloudy and raining, but the variety of shops and restaurants make this place appealing. We would live to return in the summer to enjoy all that it offers.

The Truckee River Walk area is a pretty area in Reno. I like it most in the spring and early summer when the water is rushing through. Kayak and raft rentals are popular come summer. By fall, it is quieter river but has fall colors and the rocks and boulders in the river bed are more visible. It is still... More

Had a great time on the Truckee River Walk. I was in town for business and always try to find a new hiking area. This was easy to walk and provided terrific scenery.
