This is a last minute hike and will require Friday off. I've mapped out a shorter version of the Massanutten Loop, cutting out about 20 miles or so.

I'm totally flexible with time and mileage. If someone signs-up and wants to pound out miles, I'm cool with that too. Here's a more relaxed itinerary (mileage split[masked]): 


• Park at the Elizabeth Furnace parking lot. 

• Hike to Kennedy Peak.

• 19 miles

• Elevation gain/loss: +6475/-4924


• Hike to Waonaze Peak via the Massanutten Trail and Gap Creek Trail (reconnect with Massanutten).

• 18 miles

•  Elevation gain/loss: +5044/-5052


• Hike back to car via the Massanutten Trail, Mudhole Gap, and Bear Wallow Spur.

• 15 miles

• Elevation gain/loss: +2849/-4426

Should be a cold weekend but otherwise good weather.

      Yeah, you know it's great sleeping at a 45 degree angle.

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.
