Ever since the Wild West days of Kit Carson and the Comstock Lode, visitors have been drawn to Reno-Tahoe in search of adventure. Today, the best adventures are found outdoors, where hikers can take lakeside strolls, mountain ascents, or simple walks with dogs and kids.

These trips are tailored for every type of hiker, and many are suited for mountain bikers. This new edition features 26 new hikes and all updated content.
