Truckee River Walk is a 2.2 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Reno, NV that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and road biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Simple enough and nice to look around with kids and pets. Not a trail worthy of trail shoes. Managed in flip-flops. But if you want a nice path to walk your dog at or visit downtown, this is good.
The directions are wrong for the trail. it is about 3.5 miles off. The correct address is Arlington Avenue at Island Avenue, Wingfield Park, Reno, NV 89501
and is in downtown.
this is verry fun to ride around
My husband had work in Reno which we went to after hiking for 3 days. This river walk was a delightful escape from the cityscape of casinos etc which i hate. Its basically a paved walkway along the river. Its quite pretty. They have man made breakers in the water and flat boulders that people were sunning, kayaking, floating and taking a dip in the river. When I recently visited (6/2016)this walk also featured several sculptures from a past Burning Man Festival . Very cool and interesting. full sun so put on some sunscreen and bring a bottle of water!
The trail is a bikeway and it goes a lot farther but we started at Mayberry park and walked around Dorotskar park and went back. This will continue on to several other parks including Chrissie Caughlin, Ivan Sacks, and Idlewild all the way to downtown Reno. It's mostly or all paved (I believe all but I didn't follow it to know) and easy travel. There can be some decent gaps between bathrooms but otherwise it is kid and dog friendly. Some parts follow right next to the river and others are just off. The scenery is nice but still enough civilization here and there to know you're not out of the city.
