The Truckee River runs right through downtown Reno. It’s not very wide or deep so swimming, tubing, kayaking and fishing are popular sports. A level, partly shaded, paved path follows the river. I can’t find any good information on the path so I don’t know it’s length or the start and end points.
We parked on Mill Street near the National Automobile Museum. There is an access point at the end of Museum Dr. We walked/roll west for about 3 miles until the the path met the sidewalk and without shade it became too hot to walk any farther.
