Truckee River Walk, Reno
(3.8/5 based on 750 reviews on the web)
Enjoy views of the rushing water and downtown Reno as you stroll or bike the paved Truckee River Walk. Built in the 19th century to connect the California Trail and Virginia City (the early Reno), the historical pathway runs through the city and is lined with shaded pavilions and public art. You'll cross two bridges along the way. An island in Truckee River is home to Wingfield Park, a popular hangout spot for locals. Use the riverwalk to reach the park and access downtown sites without the hassle of traffic. Put Truckee River Walk into our Reno family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
