The County in partnership with Burning Man and multiple community partners will develop a public participatory experience through an ArTrail that celebrates cultural, historic and artistic landmarks. The ArTrail will route along the Truckee River through the cities of Reno and Sparks, turn north to historic Lake Pyramid on Paiute Tribal land, and continue to the Gerlach area in the far northern region of Washoe County, over 200 miles.

The ArTrail will draw urban residents out of cities to experience and participate in the beauty and culture of the place we call home; and connect our rural residents to the economic, arts, and cultural features, organizations and individuals in our cities.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Through the ArTrail, we seek to:
