Background on Washoe ArTrail: After receiving a $75,000 Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Washoe County, in partnership with Burning Man and numerous local nonprofit and municipal partners, will establish the Washoe ArTrail with the purpose of connecting the community to the arts, history and culture of our northern Nevada region. 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 Gerlach in the far northern region of Washoe County, over 200 miles.
