Take a spring hike in the Reno area

April 10, 2015

With mild temperatures and frequent sunny days, spring is a great time to get out and hike on a variety of trails in the Reno area. There are many choices, from easy strolls to steep, challenging climbs.

Two of my favorites are hikes at the Huffaker Hills Trailhead right in Reno and at Washoe Lake State Park just a few miles south of town in Washoe Valley. Both places offer easy to moderate walks, spring wildflowers, and wide open views of the surrounding landscape.

These are only a couple of the possibilities. For more, refer to “Reno Area Hiking and Walking Trails.”

Pet owners, be considerate of others using our trails – leash your dogs and pick up the poop. It’s not only common courtesy, it’s the law in designated congested areas of Washoe County and in Nevada State Parks.
