The East Shore Trail between Incline Village and Sand Harbor State Park is now open!
The three mile route features 17 designated vista points, 11 designated shoreline access points, eight bear-proof trash stations, more than 30 bike racks, three bike repair stations with air pumps and tools, five bathrooms and five benches with more on the way. There are also six bridges, one of which is the longest bridge in the Tahoe Basin at 810 feet.
The parking is currently free. At the trailhead, there are three new parking lots with about 90 spaces near Ponderosa Road right off of State Route 28. In the coming months, it will be converted to paid parking through the Tahoe Transportation District, with revenues to be used…
Calling all mountain lovers! For those seeking a more rustic lifestyle in Reno, Galena Forest invites a magnificent respite in the tall pines.
Mother Nature’s very own water feature, Galena Creek, rambles through the community and the neighborhood is bordered by miles and miles of BLM land with the adjacent Toiyabe National Forest.
Located off Mt. Rose Highway, Galena Forest is the perfect balance between city and suburb – tucked in the forest, yet conveniently close to everything. It’s just 10 minutes from Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe resort, 15 minutes from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and 20 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe.
Right across the highway from Galena Forest, you’ll find the Galena Creek Recreation Area. It is rich in natural and…

Why was the 17th Fairway of Montreux’s Jack Nicklaus Championship Golf Course crowned the “Signature Hole?” The tee box is thrillingly perched 138 feet above the hole, providing an exhilarating view of the first shot. Gorgeously landscaped by both man and Mother Nature, the 464 Yard Par 4 features a narrow green protected by bunkers on each side, with Galena Creek running alongside the left portion of the fairway.
Just steps from the 17th tee box, our listing at 6031 Lake Geneva Drive has front-row seats to the golfing action. The hole is especially entertaining during the annual Barracuda Championship, one of only 45 stops on the PGA Tour. You can witness the magnetic excitement of professional golf while sipping an…
Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember those who have fallen serving in the military as well as honor those are serving. The three-day weekend is also the unofficial start to summer and a great time to enjoy all of the great activities around Reno.

What makes Reno so special?
Midsize cities in the U.S. are seeing a renaissance as people from large metro areas are getting sick of the hustle and bustle by putting down roots in smaller cities like Reno, Nevada. Compared to big cities, you’ll find better priced housing, improved quality of life, and business opportunities galore. What is the secret of the Biggest Little City that makes it such a great place to settle down? We have five great reasons why!
- YES to Business and Jobs; NO to Income Tax.
Just three short years ago, Tesla opened its Gigafactory and employed over 5,000 people. Soon after, other large companies followed suit like Apple, Switch, Microsoft, Intuit, and Patagonia. This movement created thousands of jobs for all…
One of the largest winters on record graced the Reno-Tahoe region and each week we can feel it getting a little bit warmer.
When it seemed like spring would never come, suddenly the sun is shining! Those bluebird days put the itch of summer in our shoes and we’re looking forward to enjoying so many springtime activities. You can enjoy the best of both worlds, or as locals affectionately call it “The Tahoe Trifecta”.
What is the Trifecta? Golf, boat/kayak and ski all in the same day. Seems impossible, but we can guarantee you that it isn’t. The weather is just warm enough to be comfortable, but not so warm that the lake is full of boats and paddlers.
Many local ski resorts will be closing by the end of April, so get…
Sierra Vista Park is set to begin construction next month and is scheduled to open to the public in early May.
Director of Parks of Recreation of Reno, Andy Bass, says that they finished construction of the perimeter trail around the park last summer, and at a recent City Council meeting the city approved to start building the entrance gate. More than 200 acres will be getting a new life at the site of the former Northgate Golf Course. The area has been empty since 2009 and it’s a great opportunity to have open space preserved in the city.
The City of Reno bought the property in 2011 for $2.5 million, but was waiting to see how the city grew before deciding what to make of it. Now they are moving forward with rehabilitation and plan to add…
The fall views in Lake Tahoe are absolutely stunning this time of year and we have the best hikes to enjoy a picnic and the views.
The best hikes end with aged cheese, cured meats and other delicious picnic items. Before the snow begins to flurry, fall is a great time to get out and enjoy all the diverse beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The many different colors and the crisp, clear air pair perfectly with the clear blues of Lake Tahoe’s waters (and of course a snack). No matter your hiking level, the five below range in distance and difficulty so there is a hike here for you!
The hike to Lake Margaret is an out-and-back trail of about 4.6 miles. Located in the El Dorado National Forest, there are large granite rocks all along the…
There are so many awesome outdoor experiences around Reno and Lake Tahoe and Interbike 2018 is here this week so we wanted to share some of our favorite mountain biking trails.
Before we know it, members of the biking world from all over will be descending on our area looking for great places to ride. These trails are fun for locals and visitors alike!
Peavine is a great place to start here in the Reno area. It has a huge network of trails and the Biggest Little Trail Stewardship has spent recent years adding and improving the single-track trails. Peavine is a big mountain all by itself on the northwest side of town, resulting in fast, flowy trails with awesome views of downtown Reno and the Sierra Nevada.
