Its really nice downtown, with bars and restaurants and Wingfield park, but if you go beyond Keystone West or Lake Street East, it starts getting sketchy fast. I'm a bog guy and don't feel particularly threatened, but I feel like I'm running through some poo...More

The Truckee River is a wild and scenice oasis in downtown Reno. The city has really embraced the river and employs it as a centerpiece for many events. The river winds through many parts of Reno and offers a respite, especially in the dog days...More

The trees were turning, the river running along beside us and enjoyed being outside, especially after 8 hours of driving. Great stop before dinner.

Went here for a walk when we were in Reno. Good choice...lost of nice trail walking along the river. Would recommend you go away from downtown area though as there are many homeless folk lounging/hanging out on the trail near downtown.

I highly suggest taking a walk at Wingfield Parks or Idalwild Park. Both family oriented and beautiful year round.
