GetHiking! at Lake Norman State Park

You asked for it, so we're bringing back the Sunday hikes!  At least once a month, we'll do a short in-town Sunday afternoon hike.  I've had a huge number of requests for a Lake Norman hike, so that'll be April's Sunday hike. 

We'll meet at the Group Camp parking lot, and hike 6 miles around the Lake Shore and Group Camp Spur Trails.  We'll leave the Itusi Trail to the mountain bikes, and instead opt for the scenic route along the water.  If you haven't been out to Lake Norman State Park before, you'll be amazed and the beautiful trails and scenery so close to home.

      Where are you lost? In the park or before you get to the park?

      We were lost at the park. We hiked the Lake Shore trail once we figured out where to go. Did not mean to be a no-show, we had just never been up there before.

    Remember to meet at the group camping parking lot, not the boat launch or visitor center!

      Hmm, 6 miles means about 3 or 3.5 hours for the back of the pack to finish, putting us at 5 or 5:30. If you're a fast hiker and finish early, then you're welcome to leave early!

      There is no was to be sure though, since the leader finishes with the slowest in the group.

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.
