Mesa Butte Loop ( Moderate T3 )

RSVP Opens March 22, 9 PM 12 km loop with 573 meters of elevation gain. This is a nice foothills hike west of Millarville. We'll park at Curly Sands and ascend Mesa Butte via the South ridge. We'll drop down the north side and loop back to Curly Sands. This will be a good warmup hike for bigger and better things to come.

Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers, I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact.
You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.

    Hello, is anyone passing by 16th Ave NE and Centre St./Edmonton Trail ? Or will anyone be passing through/leaving from the DT core? LRT is blocked or not running and I can't pin down any info about train times as it's a holiday and many parts of LRT are closed for construction. Would be grateful is someone will slow down so I can pop in. I run fast!

    March 27, 2013

    • Andy D.

      Be at the Esso at 10:20 AM. I'll pick you up.

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.
