I'm considering a move from Golden, CO to Reno. I am an avid outdoors enthusiast and lead a very active lifestyle. So much so that I like to be able to run, road cycle and mountain bike from my own home into the surrounding foothills. Is this possible to have in Reno? Which neighborhoods should I consider? (Moderately priced, of course!). I will rent at first. In Golden I've also become spoiled with the plethora of cycling/walking trails that run miles in all directions. Do those exist in Reno? Thanks so much for your insight - I'm having a very hard time making the big decision! I really want to live on the lake (Tahoe), but the job offer is in Reno and it's not a good idea to commute when your day begins so early as a school teacher.

Finally, are there any places I will be able to hike with my dog off leash(when it isn't rattler season)?

Anyone else out there into these types of activities that can help out? Are there many outdoors enthusiasts in Reno? I really appreciate your valuable insight! Thanks in advance!

I think your question is perhaps a bit broad. Take a look at a satellite image of Reno and surrounding area, there are 1000's of acres of land to play on.. in all sorts of terrain. I think bike lanes are pretty common, and there seems to be many areas people take their dogs (legit parks and perhaps otherwise).

I would venture a guess that pretty much any type of outdoor activity is available within a short drive.

Thanks! I was hoping to find some information as to where I could live and not have to drive to access local trails. I've been lucky enough to live in a location in which I just open the garage door, hop on my bike and take off up the mountain or down the bike path. Looking for that in my new home as well!

Default biking, hiking

Minden, Genoa and Carson are 20 minutes from the lake and you don't have to shovel snow. Great road biking is right out the door. From Genoa, we get to Heavenly in 15 minutes, snowshoeing and x-country in 30 or less. Hiking trails start ion Genoa, and are in every area of the lake. Try the internet (ie Lake Tahoe-everytrail) and you will find enough trails to last you for years. Of course, you can kayak the Truckee right in Reno. Enjoy.
