      Biren,
      For those of us who are driving where should we meet the group? Are we meeting at the GPS coordinates where we should park or at a trail head? Also just an FYI there is another group meeting at Grand Central at 8:15am that is going on a hike to Briarcliff-Peekskill Trail, so everyone should make sure they are with the correct group.

  • Debbie S.

    I would love to go, but now I'm thinking I might not be able to get up that early since I will be out on Friday night! Is anyone driving from NYC by any chance so that I could sleep in a little later? :)

    This is an aggressive hike, not typical for first timers.

    May 13, 2013

    • Amie

      May 13, 2013

    • biren

  • Coleen Friel M.

    If I've never done rock climbing, can I manage to do this or is it too much for me? Thanks!

    May 5, 2013

    • Mike

      Coleen this is much easier than rock climbing. No you don't need rock climbing experience as long as you have done hiking before. It will be a lot of fun. See you for a great and fun hike. Pls see our pics from hikes of last year and you will see how much fun we all had :)

      May 5, 2013

  • Han

    what is "rock scrambling"?

    May 4, 2013

  • Debbie S.

    Sounds great! Will there be an advanced group for a tougher hike? The last time I did the hike here, I had a blast(!), but lost the group because my friend and I were too fast. :)

    May 1, 2013

    • Debbie S.

      For sure! Bear Mountain was a great day :)

      May 2, 2013

    • Mike

      Indeed it was. You missed the PA Waterfall hike and BBQ Picnic last year. We are planning to do it again this year in August, so keep an eye out :)

      May 2, 2013

  • Melissa

    Looking forward to it, this will be my first meetup experience! I've done a lot of hiking but haven't tried Breakneck - I'll try not to let the name of it deter me too much! :)

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.
