Hike Black Creek Conservation Area!

Mike Hankey is leading a hike!

The Black Creek Conservation area is a 965 acre site that has a diversity of ecosystems and wildlife situated on the south bank of Black Creek.
This will be a 7-1/2 mile hike in which we will be taking breaks at 3 observation areas that overlook the ravine and Black Creek.
This will be a moderately strenuous hike in which will take approximately 4-1/2 hours to complete, so be sure to wear a comfortable pair of hiking shoes/boots bring plenty of water and snacks.
Because of the limited amount of parking available on site we will be restricting the number of participants to 20, so if you have signed up but can't make it please cancel as early as possible to give anyone on the waiting list the chance to participate.
Information regarding the hike can be had at http://www.sjrwmd.com/recreationguide/blackcreekravines/
Directions: Drive south on Blanding Blvd 13.2 miles
Turn left on County road 218 and go 2 miles

    Thank y'all for coming out today, it was a joy to lead such an awesome group and hope we can all do it again. As far as organizing mountain hikes I would love to do something like that if there's enough interest.

    Great day for a hike with a great group of hikers. Gonna miss these hikes over the summer hiatus. Maybe Mike will save us by organizing some mountain hikes for the too-hot summer months in Florida.

    Its a great hike! Done it a few times. If you bring your dog make sure you bring water as there were no water sources when I hiked it. Is nice to see Black Creek from a different perspective.

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.
