The Big Four Ice Caves Snowshoe Event

This destination is seemingly very popular.  So let's check it out and have fun.

According to WTA, it is a scenic hike and ideal for snowshoe beginners.  Round-trip measures 7 miles and has an elevation gain of only 250 feet.

Taking our time while taking pictures or just enjoying the view, it may take us 3 to 3.5 hours.

Please note in your RSVP if you are a driver.  At our meeting point we will figure out who is driving with whom

    IMPORTANT: Google map to Transit Center is not correct.
    Comming from I-5 please take the exit for RT 104 to Kingston Ferry. Follow Rt 104 to Rt. 99. Take a left onto Rt 99 and the next left will be 200th St
    Costco will be on your left side and so are the gas pumps. Take a left into the parking area and a quick right.

    I would like to clarify the meeting point address. It is Aurora Village Transit Station in Shoreline. It is located next to the Costco gas pumps.
    If you come I-5 N take the exit for Rt 104 to Kingston ferry. Follow the road until you get to Rt 99. Take a left onto Rt 99 and the next left will be 200th St. Parking lot is behind all the bus stations. I have a silver VW Golf with a bike rack.

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.
