We really enjoyed a spring winter day on the river walk. They have done a beautiful job witht the path and the access to the river. The water was really high and moving quite fast wile we walked along. The bridges are great for watching the dicks and getting across to see all of the shops.

The Truckee Riverwalk is one of the best things about Downtown Reno. It is easily accessible from the downtown casinos and provides a convenient walkway from the heart of Reno at City Plaza on Virginia Street to Idlewild Park on the West side of Downtown. My favorite part of the Riverwalk runs from the small park with the Burning Man... More

I love the Riverwalk, it's beautiful and they even put pretty flowers hanging off the walking bridge. There are nice grassy areas for the kids to run around and play. The only negative thing is that the homeless lay around the park sleeping. There's quite a few of them and usually they are grouped up in the shaded areas and... More

We enjoyed this walk along the Truckee River in Downtown Reno because there was lots to see and do. And it's just plain beautiful! There is a homemade ice cream and homemade chocolate shop and a nice cafe at the end. At the beginning are shops and bistros. There are benches everywhere. Just a lovely way to spend a few... More

Finding ourselves with some unexpected time in Reno, we were looking for something to do beside sit at a slot machine all day. Took a trek down the Truckee River Walk and really enjoyed all it had to offer. From the raging river (very high at this point) to the unique artwork, a walk worth taking for sure1

It's a beautiful walk along the Truckee River, in downtown Reno. This is just a slight ways south of downtown; it's a little cleaner than downtown Reno. The city put a lot of money into fixing this area up and it is very pretty. There are bridges across the river and you can watch people kayaking for hours, if you... More

This is a wonderful place to be any time of year. It gives you a great way to explore downtown Reno as well as experiencing all of the restaurants and other places downtown. You have access to the theater, river and concerts that take place at the park. Year round activities abound.

it's a nice walk, but calling it a "hike" is a bit far off. It's all paved and a fence along the whole path. It would be more natural without fence.

This is a really pretty little walk with parks and nice restaurants. It's a great distraction from the casinos if you want to cool off and have a picnic by the water. I'm not sure how I missed it all these years.
