Downtown River Walk

Downtown River Walk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Truckee River flows right through the glitz of downtown Reno, and the town has dressed up the promenade along its banks with colorful landscaping, sculpture, artificial waterfalls, bridges, and a whitewater park.

Whether you’re a gambler working a blackjack table or a Reno resident working a casino shift, the Truckee River Parkway offers an escape from your labor. The paved trail, artfully built along the sparkling Truckee adjacent downtown Reno, provides a convenient and entertaining outdoor experience. In addition to letting you stretch your legs and breathe fresh air, the riverside path overflows with people-watching potential. Cyclists, skaters, dog walkers, waders, rafters, kayakers, picnickers, dancers, basketball players, jugglers, and other street performers—they are all here, sharing the waterfront pathway with moms pushing strollers and couples holding hands."
