Walked the path every morning for a week while visiting. A safe and scenic walkway suitable for a walk or jog. The inforation stations are an added bonus. The overnight hoeless campers at the river are harmless but notice there numbers are increasing over the years.

As you go towards Idlewild park you will encounter a number of homeless (albeit mostly friendly or sleeping). Mayberry Park has a view of a 'waterfall' if you head east/towards downtown from the parking area as you... More

If you enjoy walking as I do, or if out of necessity this walkway was built with style and class!

First time ever to see this amazing natural beauty, enjoyed the scenic walk, it was refreshing to our weekend trip. It was the icing on the cake to be with the one you love and share such a peaceful and serene spot.

What a perfect place to exercise. As coastal dwellers, mountain views distracted us from any pain we might have felt from running at a higher altitude. Wonderful treat for all of the senses. The Truckee River's rushing sounds were energizing as well..

This is a great walk, interesting scenery, and landscaped in such a way that you and the kids can walk on many of the big flat rocks. It is such fun to poke around, looking for fish and other water critters, makes it fun for everyone.
