Moderately Easy Conditioning Hike

Please join us this Thurs. night for a 3-4 mile walk around the Damonte Wetlands, SE Reno, meeting after work at 5:30. To reach the park where we will meet, take 395 south to the Damonte Ranch exit. Go east on Damonte Ranch Parkway for 1/2 mile and turn left at Steamboat Parkway. Go another 1/2 mile and turn right into Damonte Ranch Park. Parking spaces are limited here, so you may have to park on Brittany Meadows, which would be the next right off Steamboat Parkway. Our trail will be level and paved, a good introductory hike for our conditioning season. Tennis shoes are fine, and please bring water and layers. In the past we have seen pelicans, egrets, blue heron, red-tailed hawks, red-winged blackbirds, and more, so cameras and binoculars are welcome. As this is a Sierra Club hike, we do ask you to sign our liability waiver and give a $1 donation, which helps to offset our CPR and First Aid training. Hope to see you this Thurs.!

    Traffic may make me late as well, I don't ask for groups to wait, but if a direction (such as counter clockwise) is decided, please let me know. Thanks.

    Oops! I forgot it's 1st Thursday at the Museum and I already committed to a friend. Darn it! I really like the idea that this hike is 3-4 miles. Next time.

    I work in Carson, I'll try to leave a little early so I can make it by 5:30, but I may be a few minutes late depending on traffic.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
