Mount Margaret Backcountry

  • July 19, 2013 · 7:00 PM

 

Explore trails that lead to the sapphire lakes, pinnacle studded ridges and flowered mountain slopes of the Mount Margaret Backcountry. This rugged and spectacular portion of the Monument can see effects of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. The lateral blast, a hot stone filled wind, shattered trees and swirled around peaks and basins as it toppled thousands of acres of pristine forest. We’ll be taking a 25 mile loop around this wonderful area.

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.
