We’ve included a few must-visit picturesque places AND a roundup of our favorite and most colorful fall photos in the Reno Tahoe area. Happy leaf peeping!
This beautiful 25-acre park is just off Mt. Rose Highway on the south end of Reno. Take in the beautiful fall foliage along with sagebrush and pine trees, and hike the trails near the world-famous Montrêux Golf and Country Club.
Named one of “America’s Top 10 Coolest Riverwalks,” you’ll see gorgeous colors along the Truckee River, while being within an arms reach of great shopping and fine dining. With more than 300 days of sunshine and moderate temperatures in Reno, you’ll may want to take advantage of the patio seating many places along the Riverwalk District offer.
Explore one of the tree-lined trails in this oasis located just north of downtown Reno. A stroll through the 13 acres of the native and adaptive plants and trees in the Wilbur D. May Arboretum & Botanical Garden is a great way to take in the fall colors.
Located along the Truckee River, Mayberry Park offers paved trails perfect for strollers and young children. After a nature walk, enjoy a picnic at one of the tables surrounded by the vivid changing leaves.
The blue water of Lake Tahoe pops magnificently against the fall colors of the aspen and cottonwood trees. Get an awesome view from the lake from a kayak or paddleboard… the water is calm and (believe it or not) warmer than in July!
Enjoy stunning views on one of the best hiking and biking trails in the country. Head to where the professional photographers go and snap photos of creeks, fir, pine and aspen trees, not to mention panoramic views of Lake Tahoe.
Before embarking on your leaf peeping adventure, make sure you understand and follow the rules of the trail, including being aware of trail closures. If you’re searching for more picturesque places, check out more fall inspiration from the #RenoTahoe Instagram feed.
