    Hi is there waterfalls or a river? Julie

    • Shannon B

      More like a creek, It will depend on the amount of recent rain. We always have some, but more is better

    I live up here Shannon, so I'll meet you at the trailhead. Also, I understand there's a pretty stiff fine if a ranger sees you with a dog.

      I checked with DF&G. Dogs are permitted, but must be on a leash that's no longer than ten feet. There are stiff fines for being off-leash and/or harassing cattle or wildlife.

      March 18, 2014

    • Shannon B

      Thanks for calling them.

    Hey, never been out with the group before. But I've actually been looking into getting out to Table Top. I was wondering what time everyone will be meeting at the trail head. If I come along, I'll be going straight there because I live in Grass Valley.

    March 20, 2014

    • Shannon B

      It's stated above that the eta to the trailhead is 10am.

      March 20, 2014

  • Mark S.

    I have to say Shannon, this was one of my favorite hikes of all time. Wish I could go, but I will be on another hike that day. Have fun

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.
