I took this trail and the Tom Cook trail to the top of the southern most mountain on other side of river also, total 4 miles.

Very well maintained trails, both pavement and dirt. Only wish there wasn’t so many people, it was relatively crowded.

This is more of a walk for someone with pets. It is nice that it is close to town and easy to access.

Great trail for the beginner or young children. I took my 4 yr old granddaughter on the nature trail, her first “hike”, and she loved it.

Firstly, the main trail that runs through Dorostkar Park is not a 1.5 mile loop trail, nor is it a 1.3 mile loop trail as the county describes it. It is a portion of the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway. The trail is paved with asphalt and is approximately 10 feet wide. If you start running from the Dorostkar Park parking lot, and go to the right, you will soon come to a fork. If you take the left fork you'll cross the bridge shown in some images and eventually reach a turn-around with a picnic table in the middle of it. If you take the right fork you'll head back up towards Mayberry Road and out of the park. If you head left from the Dorostkar parking lot you'll soon end up out of the park and if you keep following the natural direction of the path you'll end up in a residential area. Keep going through that and you'll end up on trail again and will go through Mayberry Park. The trail is fairly flat and almost entirely paved. It makes for a good jog if you don't mind running on asphalt. I plan to explore the area a little more. I've been back a couple of times now and have found a dirt path that is probably the loop trail. It is poorly maintained at the moment, is broken up by the paved trail, and would take 2 or 3 tries to run the 1.3 mile length of it because there are small offshoots to the trail that ultimately lead one on a shorter loop. The dirt loop trail is unmarked at the head and if you're facing the river the trail head is off to the right of the parking lot and fairly close to the road behind. This dirt trail is narrow in places and is blocked in one place that could be easily cleared.

Fun little trail to kill some time with bored kids!!.. Seems like a good spot to start rafting down the Truckee River..

A very easy walk that is mostly paved. The smell and sights along the way were special, many butterflies and wildflowers to see. It smelled so good and watching the people floating down the river was great too

Parts of the trail are narrow when walking with dogs, but it was a very pretty area with nice views of the Truckee River. Muddy in parts, but it is most likely due to the wet winter we have had.

Did this hike with our dogs and our 2 year old. It was beautiful. And the trail was kept up well. Would definitely do it again.

me and my one year old son did this and he loved it! walked half, sat on the bridge and had a snack then walked back to the start. He did really well on the whole hike. Can hear the train pass which was fun for my son.

The nature signs posted by Washoe County Parks & Recreation appear written by a person with only a grade school level education. Basic Writing 101, do not use the word “you,” and these signs repeatedly use the word “you.” Where was the editor?

Nice close to town trail close to the Truckee River. You can hear the river the whole time on the trail and cross over with a cool bridge. Several other smaller bridges in the park. Only one spot with snow this time of year.

About as easy as you can ask for. A nice workout if you push it.

Not a bad hike. Just to much like a park, even on the nature trail. Would probably do it again but not a must.

We took our toddler on this little hike, and he loved it, especially crossing the bridges. Part of the trail was kind of swamp like this afternoon, but it was easy enough to get around. Part of the trail is in the brush by the river, and part of it is in a weedy field. We ended up doubling back to walk along the river again and to keep the wind out of our faces.

Very pleasant early morning walk next to the river. Will come back in a few weeks when the vegetation is more lush and greener.

It's a nice trail. You can walk on the paved walkway or venture onto the dirt trails that lead you along the water.
