    Hi! I was talking to some people who hiked Feather Falls around Thanksgiving this year, and they said that the lower trail is closed due to a bridge washout. This is also posted on the Forest Service website and appears current: http://www.fs.usda.gov/list/plumas/home/list/?position=Feature* I am very happy to do this hike as an out-and-back on the upper trail rather than as a loop, but I just thought I'd mention it in case people weren't aware of this issue. Thanks.

    December 23, 2012

    • Shannon B

      Thanks Erik, it's been like that for awhile. I was hoping it would be either fixed or otherwise passable if the water is low enough. Not looking like that now with all this rain.

    Won't make it this year, I'll be working New Years Eve.

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.
