Bronson Cave Hike

It has been used in countless movies and TV series. It was seen as the 'Bat Cave' in the classic "Batman" TV series, as well as in "Bonanza," "Star Trek: Voyager," "Fantasy Island," "The Lone Ranger," "Gun Smoke" and the "Wild Wild West". Plus feature films like " "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." Your Loving Hike Leader: Deeds, Is hosting an Intermediate level, level 6/7 Tourist Hike; over 6 miles round trip and maybe over 4 hours but not by much.

Meeting Place - Parking Lot #2 (at the steps, north end) just north of the Merry-go-round - do not look at map link up top -

'tis no good: = Click here in order to SEE MAP LINK !

Attention:There " MIGHT" be trails, some climbing, some jumping, some light jogging, a little bit of trotting, fast and slow walking. However, there will be a definite sense of ... " I Met New Friends " and a sense that you now are a Hiker !!. This is Not a Training event BUT this hike is focused on exercise, History and socializing. All are welcome to this family/friendly environment. Dogs, Teens and those who want Love are welcome.

Wear hiking shoes or trail runners, 2 pairs of socks, bring a good attitude, water, sunscreen, camera, and some snacks, I may get hungry ....

There will be warmer weather heading to a destination Los Angeles History and a little cooler returning back to the parking lot. Get into the Parking Lot early because I AM LEAVING AT " THREE PM " sharp maybe one or two minutes later. That's all the time I'm waiting ...

" In Deeds we trust ! "

    Fun group, good leader. Mr. Deeds was enthusiastic and friendly and helped "loosen up" the group so folks would be comfortable getting to know each other. The group ended up being 25-30 people and there was a wide variety of speed and endurance levels so the hike had to "find the middle" and wasn't super-challenging. It was a diverse and very friendly and interesting group, and lots of us brought our dogs. We enjoyed photo ops along the way and at the Bronson Caves.

      very safe and almost no jumping as I can recall on this hike ..... but I have to post this to prevent someone from crying and whining about " you didn't say this in the write-up ", this jumping thing usually refers to when I do a river hike ... you have to jump a little.

    Even though Mr. Deeds doesn't mention it, I am sure he won't mind you bringing your pooch. Your dog should be on a leash.

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.
