This is an ADVANCED HIKE!!

 

I will be leading this hike and the pace...

 

If you don't get on this hike...don't show up as that is not cool. 

Check the calendar as there are a few others scheduled this weekend.

 

Let's take a Hike. This will be a 9.5 mile hike. We will try to make it in 2.5 hours. Please dress accordingly. The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. If it rains this week the trails will be muddy. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike.  Also, bring a pair a sturdy gloves, protective eyewear and a copy of map.

Pace: Fast

Length:  9.5 miles or so.

Time to complete:  2.5 hours or so.

Be prepared to go off trail!!

We will meet at 8:45 and start the hike at 9:00 sharp.

We will meet by the Swallow Cliff South Parking Lot (not the Stair area).

Swallow Cliff Woods (South) is just south of La Grange Road/96th Ave (US 45) on Cal-Sag Road (Rt 83).

      Showed to a coworker. About the map, he commented, "Looks like you got lost here." :) Re elevation, it was, "Whoa, that's serious!"

    You're limit-testing me Oscar. You're putting doubts in my mind about Mt.W. It was a five-star hike today and the problems I had with equipment failure and excess baggage (poles) were all mine. I wish we all could have fit through that gap in the gate.

    Thanks for coming out and indulging me as we go off-trail exploring and get a workout. It was a challenging hike, you guys should give yourselves five stars for making through this strenuous hike!!

    Awesome hike, Oscar! Thank you! Enjoyed the workout, the great people on the hike, and off trail adventures. I'd noticed some of those areas by Rte. 83 on my way to work and thought about checking them out. So, I'm glad we went there!

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.
