Buzzards Rock

A Level Hike

***We will meetup at Centreville Park and Ride to form carpools and then drive to the trail-head.  Please arrive a few minutes before 8AM***

Got New Year's resolutions? Start the year out right. We will hike the Buzzard Rock trail to Sherman Gap trail and return. This is a 12 mile hike with about 2600 feet of elevation gain. Along the way, there will be views of Passage Creek and mighty Meneka Peak. The hike is mostly a ridge walk with great views along the way.

Hike Leader: Gene Vivalda[masked] (H)

Carpool Fee: $9


Hike rating is based on both the linear distance and elevation change with 400 feet of climbing considered equivalent to 1 mile linear distance. The ratings are:
A=Difficult (greater than 13 miles)
B=Moderately Difficult (10-13 miles)
C=Moderate (7-10 miles)
D=Easy (less than 7 miles)

    Happy New Year!
    It looks like we will have a great day to hike tomorrow....cold enough to keep warm on our ascent.
    Tomorrow's hike is an out and back hike...6 miles to Sherman Gap, lunch, and return. Most of the climbing will be done on the way out. Since we will be doing a lot of ridge walking, be prepared for some wind and dress accordingly. I plan to have carpools arranged by 0800, so please plan on being at the P&R on time. ...Gene

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.
