The River Walk, in downtown Reno features an identified stroll along the river that is popular with walkers and bicyclists. You can see folks fishing in the river. Kayakers practice among the courses. However, the City of Reno enables and encourages the homeless to camp all along the walkway. While none seem aggressive, the population is growing with the attendant trash, urine and fecal deposits. I love Reno and the River Walk. JUst be prepared when you go.

Sadly, the city of Reno seems to be doing little to nothing to clear the swarms of homeless people littered throughout the public parks and areas surrounding the entire river. The river itself is nice and has some fun, slow current spots that even a young child can have fun in. The surrounding areas unfortunately looks like a homeless hotel.

A great way to start the day. Walked it early in the morning. It was not crowded. Did it on a Sunday. There were artists set up and a man playing the guitar. Walked all the way down into the neighborhood. Great coffee house on the path there. Beautiful houses, nice art sculptures on the path. Recommend walking one side and then the other side on the way back.

The Truckee River Walk is part of the trail that leads from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake. This portion of the trail is a paved walkway along the Truckee River and passes through two of Reno's best parks. Sections of the walkway are shared with bikes.

The drawback to this walkway is the number of homeless people who are in the parks and along the walkway.

I would like to score it higher, but even average is given because you can see that some are really trying hard to make Reno nicer. We have planned an afternoon in Reno (driving around Lake Tahoe). It was on my to do list for years, I just thought pictures made it look so attractive with the mountains in the background. What a disappointment. The River Walk was one of the things to do, we managed to do a part of it, and then aborted the mission as it was covered with drunk, drugged and homeless, human poo and stinking of pot. To add, no cafes or restaurants open or even anywhere to be seen, we did not feel unsafe, but uncomfortable. In our initial plan, we were due to stay a night in Reno - so happy we did not. And with inspiration to be a little Vegas, given how bad Vegas got, this should not be the aim.

The City has done a nice job with this area. It contrasts quite a bit from the nearby downtown. While there were definately some disadvantaged people here and there my wife and i, who are both 65+, were comfortable walking the full 360. Reno should be sure to promote it as it changed our picture of Reno immensly

The River Walk in Reno is well worth the effort for those wishing to get outside. The city of Reno has done an outstanding job on the river walk project. Beautiful grounds and landscaping add to the experience. The river is enhanced by the placement of rocks and shrubbery. Plenty of space for all in this wonderfully done civic project . Congratulations Reno for a job well done.

This may be the best part of town. They have developed the river area into a beautiful park and a place where you will want to spend some time. Good for strolls and for picnics. Fun to watch the river flow.

Compared to numerous other river walks we've visited in the southwest, we're glad we took the time to see this one. Although we didn't utilize any of the businesses along the way, there appeared to be several restaurants and bars that looked nice. The Truckee River is gorgeous, there's an adjacent park and it's a good place to put your feet, or more, in this pristine river

It is a nice river and a nice walk. But there isn't much to it. A few shops and restaurants.. Unfortunately there is a large amount of people that don't have anywhere else to go hanging around everywhere.. They have every right to be there, but people who may not feel safe in such a situation should know.
