Update: In-person Discover Your Parks Walks are back for 2021. You can also virtually visit several popular parks and trails with guided hike presentations at "Virtual Guided Hikes" on the TMPF website.

Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation is leading Discover Your Parks Walks in different parks located in Washoe County from April through September, 2021. Most 2021 walks are on Thursday evenings and start at 6 p.m. Exceptions are Hidden Valley Park at 7:30 p.m. on April 29, the proposed nature study area at 8 p.m. on June 24, and Cottonwood Park at 6:30 p.m. on August 26. Walks vary in distance from half a mile to about 1.5 miles. Each week, you can explore a new location and learn about the unique and varied ecology and history of parks in our area. Plan on spending a bit over an hour on each hike. Walks are free and open to everyone. However, capacity is limited and you must register online from the website for each walk
