Hike up Flattop from Glen Alps

This will be just a standard hike up Flattop trail.  I was up there last weekend and found the steps getting a bit buried and rounded in spots.  Not enough snow to worry about slides, but slips and falls can still be painful so wear Kahtoola micro-spikes at a minimum.

The upper slope is in an "in-between" stage.  The snow is too shallow to kick steps, or dig your heels in, but there is enough to make it slippery.  I'll probably bring my long ice axe for the upper slope, but poles would do fine.

Dogs are welcome; I'll bring Luna and she is very social.

    Nice easy-paced hike, which is just what I needed. Good trail, blue skies, and a stiff breeze at the top. Good to see you again, Jon!

    I would like to but I'm in Japan right now, traveling. All we are doing is eating and eating and ...you know. I'll have to do a lot of hiking when I get back to lose all I gain on this trip. See you guys then.

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.
