Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway Description

The Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway is a multipurpose, off-street path paralleling Veterans Parkway, also known as the Southeast Connector, which connects Reno to Sparks. The walking and biking path was named for Erica Greif, a University of Nevada, Reno student and cycling enthusiast who died in 2015 in a car accident on her way to a California bike race. Sun protection is your friend as there is no shade to obscure the desert sun, but there are benches where folks can rest if they need to.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no dedicated parking for this trail, but parking is available near the southern end at Double Diamond Park (9100 Wilbur May Pkwy) and at Cyan Park (2121 Long Meadow Dr, Reno).

To reach the trail from Double Diamond Park, briefly head east along S Meadows Parkway which has an unprotected bike lane and a sidewalk. To reach the trail from Cyan Park, head north along Veterans Parkway. It also has an unprotected bike lane and a sidewalk. Take appropriate precautions.

My Sunday Morning Favorite

I really enjoy getting on this trail early on a Sunday Morning. I am usually on the trail by 8am.

I start at the south end and ride to E Greg Street.

I park at the Double Diamond Park. It is just a short ride along S Meadows Parkway to the beginning of the trail.

I included two screen shots of the Garmin map and a picture of the entrance to the Double Diamond Park.

Love this trail! Views of wild horses and detached from traffic, wish we had more trails like this!!

Nice path for all levels!

I rode this path with a friend recently (she’s experienced, I’m a beginner) and we both had a good time! Nicely paved, a few slight hills, and decent length.

Good for all levels!

I just got a bike and rode this path with my cycling-experienced friend. We both had a good time, explored both directions when the path forked closer to Sparks, and appreciated how well the path was maintained. Fairly flat—a little more hilly on the way back (toward S. Reno), but great overall!


A nice fall afternoon ride!

Easy trail with wide open views. Well maintained for one small area that needs some goat head bushes trimmed. Nice benches at several points to take a break. No shade, except under one bridge, so be prepared if it’s summer. We ended up on several nice bike/walk paths in housing developments on the southern end that took us back to our motel off 580. Easy For families with kiddos.
