Oxbow Nature Study Area Loop

Reno, Nevada

Oxbow Nature Study Area Loop Professional Review and Guide

"A nearly pristine pocket of riparian wildland has been set aside along the Truckee River within Reno’s city limits. The nature trail that winds through this tiny preserve bears witness to how nature recovers after fire and flood.

Restoration and evolution are tangible in the Oxbow Nature Study Area. Its setting is distractingly urban, with railroad tracks running down one side of the preserve and apartment buildings visible through the trees and brush along the riverside on the other. But within the natural area itself you are insulated by greenery, birdsong, and the soothing rumble of the Truckee River rushing over its rocky bed. And if you return year-after-year, you can watch the land heal itself."
