Swan Lake Nature Study Area Trail is a 2.8 mile out and back trail located near Reno, Nevada and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from March until November.
The area used to be the dump.
I took my preschool kids. This app has you parking in front of Sherman Williams warehouse. There is little to no parking there. Put Swan Lake Park into Google maps and park at the park. Outside of that, it was a pretty walk, mostly on docks over wet lands. There had to be several wasp nests by near by because we walked through a couple of small swarms, for those allergic
Love this place! DIZFIZ has a geocache at the very end of the floating dock!
The trails look abandoned and overgrown and it's obvious that the city has completely neglected the area and let it grow wild. That being said, it is a wildlife preserve spot. Its saving grace is that it is a beautiful and quiet spot to walk.
Beautiful fun hike for kids!!!
