Hike Your Way to a Good Time

Reno is known for its amazing outdoor activities, some of which include the gorgeous Lake Tahoe or even Incline Village and some are even right in Reno’s backyard!

I could write a long post about all the activities, but for the sake of time and your eyes we are going to focus on one, hiking! Who doesn’t love a good hike? With landscape views, friendly wildlife and your hiking boots, what is not to love? Here is a brief list of some amazing hiking spots you can take advantage of when you visit the Biggest Little City because you’re going to want to know where to go in Reno!

  1. Huffaker Park is located right in the heart of Reno off Huffaker Lane. This 9-acre park is known for a 1.7-mile walking and running trail with scenic views and native plants. This is perfect for those looking for something a little less strenuous.
  2. The Famous N is part of Rancho San Rafael Park and the Reno Sports Complex, parks separated by North McCarran Blvd. If you want something easy, stick to the trails at Rancho San Rafael. Looking for more of a challenge, and want to visit the gigantic N on the mountain in honor of the University of Nevada, Reno? Then cross over to the Reno Sports Complex with trails that lead right up the hill!
  3. The Mt. Rose Summit Tahoe Rim Trail Trailhead will take you to Lake Tahoe, a brief drive from Reno, but with exceptional views of the lake and some water falls. This trail goes all the way around Lake Tahoe, all 191.6 mi² of it! You can traverse the whole trail if you are feeling tough or locate a trail head and go where you are comfortable!

Hiking is a great exercise, but more importantly a truly fun activity with terrific views and amazing experiences. Lace up those boots and grab plenty of water!
