Dog-Friendly After Work Hike & Dinner, Bear Creek Lake Park

  • This location is shown only to members

(To RSVP, put yourself on wait list--see NOTE below.) Bring your dog on this relatively easy but scenic hike around Bear Creek Lake Park. The hike will be a little under 5 miles/500' of elevation gain, and we'll hike to the summit of Mt. Carbon (approx. 5800') for views of the hogback, Mts. Falcon and Morrison, and the park. We'll start and finish at the parking lot of Homestead Grill, and after the hike those interested have dinner/drinks at Homestead Grill (for menu and prices click on link, then click on 'Menu' at upper right). Hopefully, the weather will be warm enough and we'll eat outside on the patio. Dogs are allowed at the restaurant outside, but not inside the restaurant. I suggest that you bring a sweater just in case it's a little chilly outside for dinner.

NOTE: To give more people a chance to get on this hike, everyone interested will register for the wait list, and then after a few days I will randomly select people from the wait list to go on the hike (subject to some conditions—see Policy on Registering for Hikes). Those selected from the wait list will receive an email from Meetup notifying them. Your order on the wait list will not matter, so you have a few days to register (approx. two or three days) before I fill the roster, and you will not need to rush to register for this event. I may still advance people from the wait list later if enough people cancel. Please read this event listing in full before registering.

Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. Dogs are welcome on this hike, but they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. If you join this hike, you are agreeing to this waiver.

Voting is underway for Coca Cola’s Take it to the Park campaign! Please vote until July 15 to give Bear Creek Lake Park an opportunity to win grant money for improvements. Click here for details.

Directions: We're meeting outside the entrance to Homestead Grill, 11500 W. Hampden Ave, inside of Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood. Click here for directions. From Kipling Pkwy one block north of 285/Hampden, turn west onto W. Girton Drive. Follow the signs to Homestead Golf Course. There is no entrance fee to get to Homestead. Do not enter the park at the entrance on Morrison Rd. just east of C470 (unless you want to pay the entrance fee).

    Beautiful, picturesque evening! Fantastic photos. Nice group of dogs (and owners and other hikers). Excellent time at dinner outside of Homestead after the hike, too.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
