“A paved path section of the Tahoe-Pyramid Trail from Downtown Reno to the trail's end near Vista Boulevard in Sparks.”— Lori Bellis
Rock Park is a good mid-distance starting point for out-and-back trips going East (10 miles round trip). It's a nice, mostly shaded trail with good views of the river. Lots of birds and waterfowl in the spring and summer. Fall colors are great. It's also a nice winter trail when dirt trails around Reno aren't available because of mud and snow. Adjacent land to the north is the Sparks industrial area, which can be an interesting contrast.
There are several city park access points in this section. This is a portion of the larger Tahoe-Pyramid Trail system.
