    Thank you Bill for a fantastic day! Great weather, beautiful scenery and a fun group! I bet that there were quite a few tired feet!

    I haven't been there since the 90s, a great time of year to walk, really looking forward to it.

    I would like to take the train at Marble Hill. So, should I meet group at Philipse Manor?

    • Bill

      We are taking the 9:20 a.m. train from Grand Central, which arrives at Marble Hill at 9:40 a.m., and Philipse Manor at 10:12 a.m. If you get on the train at Marble Hill you can join us when we arrive at Philipse Manor.

    i want to go but don't think i have time for the whole 12 miles. is there a convenient place to cut back?

    October 24, 2013

    • Bill

      There is no place to drop out. And unless you know the trails I do not recommend backtracking to the start.

    What time do you expect to return back to Grand Central?

    October 20, 2013

    • Bill

      I am aiming to get either the 4:10 or 4:37 train back. A worse case scenario would be getting the 5:10 train.

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.
