Hike Exciting Little Mountain In The Snow!!!


Little Mountain is actually an L-shaped ridge on the Lake-Geauga County line that rises 571 feet above Lake Erie. It was an imposing landform and created transportation problems for settlers.

Wealthy Clevelanders, including the Rockefellers, the Hannas, the Wades, the Mathers and others, vacationed at Little Mountain from the 1830s into the early 1900s.

Little Mountain catches the winds and storms that sweep off the lake. It gets twice as much snowfall as the rest of Northeast Ohio: typically more than 100 inches a year. It also gets more rain, creating its own wet and cool Canadian micro-climate.

Covered with giant conifers, Little Mountain looks and feels like something out of a fairy tale or a comic book.

The 190-acre tract features dramatic rock outcroppings, ledges, sheer rock walls and un worldly crevices that suddenly open and stretch hundreds of feet.

For those of you who have hiked it with me, you know how magical this place is.  For those who are new to Little Mountain, boy are you in for a treat.  Space is LIMITED, and there will not be another tour scheduled.  Please RSVP as soon as you can.

    Sounds like a great hike- however, a new hike was posted at similar time and since there is a wait list for Little Mountain, I'll kindly step aside and let someone have my spot. Enjoy!

      Sorry Ellen, I just saw this question. When you RSVP you can add a guest. Unfortunately, this hike has been full with a waiting list for quite awhile. I see that you are confirmed, that's great.

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.
