Loop hike to big rock formations above Adams Canyon

This is an ADVANCED hike which is STRENOUS both ascending and descending.   We will be following a horse trail with some switch backs on the ascent, but the hiking trail back down is steep and has some loose rock sections. At the high point of our hike we can check out some large, interesting rock formations.  We can also enjoy a dramatic view down into Adams Canyon.

Very few people know about this trail, so be one of the few who get to experience it.  Now is the best time to hike the horse trail before the foliage grows in for the summer.  We will pass a deer skeleton someone put in a tree and be able to see some commercial bee hives placed on the mountain.  Don’t worry, the bee hives are not close to the trail.  There is also a small cave formation within one of the giant rocks up top.  The trails we are using eventually go to Adams Cabin, but we aren’t going that far (up the mountain). I walked the loop without stopping in 1 ½ hours. We can plan on a two hour hike so we are back to the vehicles before dark.  The hike will be cancelled in the event of rain – the trail will be too slippery.  Bring headlamps just in case.

    Sorry, me and the word strenuous don't get along very well. Sounds lovely though

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.
