They have lots of hiking paths and one is a marked nature trail. The park is traversed by Galena Creek which is nice and keeps things cool in the summer. Good spot for a picnic and a hike.

Galena Creek Regional Park is a wonderful place for an afternoon getaway. Bring a lunch (yes there are tables and picnic areas with grills), or just come for a wonderful hike up into the wilderness. The trails are well kept and there are many. The...More

What a fantastic gem minutes from Reno! Being San Francisco natives, we go gaga over snow but we weren't in the mood to ski. We just wanted to play around, build a snowman, and enjoy being together. My kids, 9, 6, and 5, loved being...More

This unique nature preserve located 10 miles from all the action in the Reno Area is just the place to hike, picnic or to enjoy the Sierras at their finest. Nice restroom facilities and a place you can arrange your own party complete with tables...More

Forget about the casinos, head south of Reno but not far as Tahoe to smell the Sugar Pines, Manzanita bush, bitter and sage brush. You can hike, bike, or picnic so close to my house!

A 'must do' if you're visiting the Reno area. There is no charge to visit the park and the hiking ranges from easy to challenging. A special place to wander through the beautiful pine forest with a small creek meandering through it.
