Built in 1938 by the Works Progress Administration, Geiger Lookout Wayside Park is a picturesque lookout with views of Reno and the surrounding countryside.
The picnic area was originally built with picnic tables, picnic shelters, wood grills and an outhouse; however only the original masonry remains. You can still visit to admire the view or even have a picnic, but don't expect any amenities.
While it's sad to see the site neglected, the remaining masonry is beautiful having been built with colourful local stone. Like any outhouse built of stone, I expect it will last a long time.
