Jack’s Canyon is a 6.5 mile long canyon in the Munds Mountain Wilderness and lies between Lee and Munds Mountains on the west and Horse Mesa to the east. The trail was built to move livestock to upper elevations. Starting at the trailhead in the Village of Oak Creek we skirt the boundary of a subdivision and then follow an old jeep trail to the Jack Canyon Tank. We begin to climb up a dry streambed. Stands of Arizona cypress, banana yucca, and cat claw acacia cover the canyon floor. We climb to the top to a saddle which connects to the Mogollon Rim and Munds Mountain. Those so inclined can scamper/saunter  another 1000’ to the top of the Munds Mountain. After all, this is a HIKING club - you will want to summit this mountain.

We will rewards ourselves handsomely afterward at a local restaurant. Bring plenty of water, snacks and sun protection.

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.
