12 mile loop, which includes going to Caesars head visitors center. it is about 2/3 way on the trail, restrooms, water are available there, but you will need water/food prior to restocking. this is an awesome hike with lots of water/rock features! lots of wildflowers for unruly dogs to trample upon too.

includes rim of the gap, frank coggins, coldsprings branch, jones gap trails.

VERY STRENUOUS! 3000 ft. elevation change. WEAR GOOD TRACTION!! rock scrambling will be involved. WE WILL KEEP A BRISK PACE!!!!

we will depart ingles across biltmore square mall at 10:00, so please be on time.

be prepared to drive or chip in for gas. it is about a 50 minute drive, there is also a $2 per person parking/entry fee that goes to the park service.

see below for more trail info; you should have RECENT experience at this distance to participate.

    Excellent way to spend a Sunday. I hereby revoke my accusation of meanness. Your daddy's alright, Bandit boy.

    whatever time you personally need to be there to leave at 10. If you need to go potty, get your snackiepoo...whatever. In other words... get your asses out of bed, bus leaves at 10!! :-)

    What Rose said...are we really leaving at 10 sharp or 10:10-ish? That extra 10 mins of sleep might make all the difference as I'm crawling up the mountain.

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.
