Sparks Boulevard Trail Description

Beginning a few blocks north of where the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway and the Erica Greif Memorial Bikeway intersect (accessible via wide sidewalks), the Sparks Boulevard Trail provides a means for cyclists and pedestrians to continue their journey north along one of the main drags in the city of Sparks. The trail makes use of underpasses to minimize the number of required road crossings, providing a surprisingly smooth trail experience considering the dense suburban surroundings - it is lacking in the scenic appeal that the trails along the Truckee River benefit from, but still provides a nice route for getting around the area.

Starting in the south, the trail runs between the busy roadway and an irrigation ditch that branches off from the river, passing by numerous suburban outlet stores and businesses. The ditch offers a lovely green corridor to accompany your walk or ride, and trees are placed sporadically along the trail to give some semblance of separation from the street - shade is pretty sparse and intermittent, so be prepared with some sunscreen!

Continuing north, the trail moves to the east side of the street at Springland Drive, and then over to the west side at Baring Boulevard. Entering a more residential section of town, with scores of neighborhoods and local parks located just off the trail, the trail then proceeds into rolling hills bordering an undeveloped stretch of land, with plenty of views of the hills and mountains to the west. The trail comes to an end at Disc Drive, where a wider sidewalk on the east side of Sparks Boulevard continues north into the suburban communities up the road.

Parking and Trail Access

No dedicated trail parking is available for this trail; parking may be found nearby the trail either on-street or at local businesses - be sure to follow any posted parking signs and regulations.

Sparks Boulevard Trail Reviews

Love this path

This path is really conveniently located to a lot of homes along Sparks BLVD. It's short, but is a great connector to the Truckee River bike path. Also, so many ducks live along this path and they are just super fun to watch. It has a few places where the path dips down below the road level, and these can occasionally collect water. But if you're looking for a place to entertain your children with echoes, these underways are definitely the place to do it. The path is wide enough to accommodate traffic going both ways, which makes it great for walking or biking or bringing your dogs.
