Long Pond is a great hike. 5.5 miles. I want to do the book hike w/ the road work. It is a great work out w/ a long steep hill before returning back to the trail. .Please allow 2.5 to 3  hours. The book states 3 to 4 hours but I have never come close to that.   It is considered a strenuous hike at least the first and last mile as stated in Ken Weber 's " Walks and Rambles ".  This a great little hike with a lot to offer. With some nice outcroppings , mountain laurel and from what is said the tallest rhododendrons in the state . Sorry they are not in bloom at this time .What I find particularly interesting are the piles of rocks or cairns  that are scattered about in one section. Alien landing zone ? ancient burial ground or just a pile of rocks. Please keep in mind this a good work out . Good boots are must as well, water and food  . If you  are not  use to a moderate pace hike please do not sign up for this hike. We will carpool from the Park And Ride . Volunteers needed.  It is about a 10 minute  ride to the trail head . Parking is extremely limited!! You must be comfortable descending steep rocky areas and climbing come steep inclines.

    The hike was as advertised - a bit challenging & a great time in the woods. The views from the high bluffs across the pond with the advancing fall colors was a thing of beauty to behold.

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.
