Located just east of Reno
, apartments in Lockwood allow residents to enjoy the sunshine and blue skies in Northern Nevada without having to deal with the constant neon lights keeping them awake at night.
Aside from its hot and sunny summer weather, apartments in Lockwood are generally known for their close access to a wide variety of hiking and running trails that wind throughout the Virginia Range. This particular section of the small peaks are known as "colored hills" because of their orange tint - brought about by deposits of various minerals in the soil.
However, just because they are known as hills doesn't mean that the climbs can't be a significant challenge for the residents of Lockwood apartments. Many of the trails, which generally begin in the nearby Hidden Valley Regional Park, have very steep climbs up to points that extend more than 1,300 feet above the city of Reno itself.
The park itself also has a number of other features, which can provide Lockwood apartment residents something to do during nice weather - which is fairly frequent since area officials say it only gets about eight inches of rain per year. The park includes a number of picnic areas, a pair of tennis courts, a sports field, volleyball court, equestrian area and a children's playground - so there's something to do for nearly everyone. Opened in 2008, the Link Piazzo Dog Park in the park has also become a popular attraction for local residents.
