Oxbow Nature Study Area Nature Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Located a mere 2 miles from the downtown Reno casinos, the Oxbow Nature Study Area is an ecological oasis in the midst of urbanization, where the roar from the nearby Truckee River and a chorus of bird songs almost totally drown out the urban cacophony. A nature trail follows the course of the river upstream for a half mile along a boardwalk with interpretive signs and numbered posts corresponding to information in the park brochure, providing interesting tidbits about the ecology of the area.
The trail is wheelchair accessible and flat enough to suit just about anyone, no matter their age or level of conditioning. In addition to the nature trail, observation decks, park benches, and picnic tables are scattered throughout the park, which also has a small interpretive center staffed by a knowledgeable ranger."
