Geiger lookout is frequented by sunset enthusiasts, people looking to stretch their legs out, In-N-Out lovers wanting to enjoy their food with a great view, people looking to take a step back in history, vista enjoyers, and curious travelers going to and coming from Virginia City. The lookout can be found a little way up a winding route to Virginia City from Reno at a turnout with about 11 parking spaces.
One of the best things about Reno is how varied it can be within such a short distance. With rock-lined paths, muted colors of nature and vibrant red mineralize mountains, Geiger Lookout provides a unique experience.
There are multiple lookout points where you will find sweeping views of Mt. Rose, the Sierra Mountains and Downtown Reno. At about 1,000 ft. elevation above the Truckee Meadows, you will feel amazing being surrounded by amazing views.
The park and the ruins (1938) of barbecues, wells, restrooms, and a "love seat" help bring people back in time and activate their wonders of the history behind them.
