Weekly Trail Highlight: Oxbow Nature Study Area

Thanks to friends of OTR, Mike White and Mark Vollmer, we will be highlighting a Truckee River trail from their book “50 Best Strolls, Walks, and Hikes Around Reno” each week in May. Their book is available for purchase online at Sundance Book Store.

We will be featuring some of Marks incredible photography from each trail on our blog each week.
