Evening Hike and Swim: Dupont

  • August 21, 2013 · 5:45 PM

Back by popular demand....actually some arm twisting;

Bring your swimming attire, towel, headlamp or flashlight, water, food or snacks, and lets go on a six mile easy - moderate hike Wednesday night. We will park at the High Falls parking area and hike to Bridal Veil Falls, then on the way back we will stop at Lake Dense to swim.

All the trails we use will be gravel roads with small rolling hills. We will keep a good walking pace however.

Meet at 5:45 pm, leave at 6:00 pm, those meeting us there, please be at the trail head no later then 6:45 pm.

Leashed pets welcome...

      Cathy, the Ingles Ian't that big. Look at people parking in spots away from the store entrance, along the periphery of the parking lot.

    There is remarkably little poison ivy in the area. You may quite easily get poison ivy from your dog, depending upon how sensitive you are. What I find useful is oiling my skin before exposure and washing and re-oiling after exposure. The best way to cleanse your skin is a product called TECNU. I don't know where you can buy it locally, but it is available online. It is expressly formulated for removal and neutralization of the oils responsible for reaction. Another remedy that I have not tried is wild nasturtium, which is available in the area.

    Dog hiking question: I'm new to hiking around these mtns. How common is it for someone to get poison ivy from touching their dog after hiking? Is there a lot is PI on this particular trail?

    Secondly, I'm picking up Hannah below she's all good.

      Hi Judy, congratulations on your first sign-up! If you are looking for day or morning hikes, there are a few others posted already which happen earlier in the day. It just depends on the hike and the organizer.

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.
