Reno, Nevada is one of the best communities in the nation for outdoor recreational opportunities. With over three hundred days of sunshine a year, the weather beckons residents and visitors alike to step outside and enjoy a casual stroll in a city park, a stiff climb to the top of one of the area’s surrounding mountains, or just about anything in between. White offers the most complete guide for walkers, joggers, runners, and hikers to the best paths and trails in the greater Reno-Sparks region.


This guide provides readers the most complete and detailed information for each excursion, from the Truckee River corridor to the Northern Valleys, including lakes, parks, trails, and mountains. Whether you are looking for a short and easy stroll on a paved path along one of the city’s greenbelts, or an extended hike into the mountains of the Mount Rose wilderness, this is your all-inclusive resource. White is one of the area’s foremost experts on the outdoors, and he includes interesting sidebars about human and natural history for each trip. This is a guide for anyone who enjoys a stroll, walk, or hike in and around Northern Nevada’s premier outdoor playgrounds.

Mike White

Mike White has had dogs most of his life, including a giveaway mongrel when he was a teenager, a puppy who was going to be drowned, and his current huntaway, Cooper, who features throughout How to Walk a Dog.

They've been wonderful mates, loyal company and frequently disobedient. Some have broken his bones; all have broken his heart when they've gone. White is one of New Zealand's best-known journalists and a senior writer at North & South magazine where he has won more than 20 national media awards, including the Wolfson Fellowship to Cambridge University.

In 2013 he wrote the best-selling true crime book Who Killed Scott Guy? He lives in Wellington with his partner, Nikki, and they walk Cooper along the coast, through the bush and at the city's dog parks.
