G_NP_2_2014 Grinnell Glacier ~11mi/2000ft

WEATHER OR GRIZZLIES MAY ALTER TODAY'S PLANS. WILL POST CHANGES AS THEY COME UP. 

ALSO, BESIDES OUR USUAL PREPARATIONS FOR LONG HIKES BRING RAIN/COLD WEATHER GEAR JUST IN CASE AND ALSO LET'S WALK WITHIN SIGHT OF EACH OTHER, ESPECIALLY ME SINCE I'LL HAVE THE BEAR SPRAY. 

                                        GRINNELL GLACIER

                My phone in case you get lost:[masked]-1976.

The Hike: The full hike to Grinnell Glacier is ~11mi but people can make it ~7mi only by either doing an alternate hike to Grinnell Lake only or taking  two shuttle boats across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine on the way and back from Grinnell Glacier.  After this hike, the plan is to do a stop and walk on the Trail of the Cedars Nature Trail (~2-5mi).

For driving and main hike route details seeCLICK HERE

Gathering Place: The hike map above has the driving route from West Glacier to the Many Glacier area.  Once in the Many Glacier area, follow the signs to the Many Glacier Hotel and park in the large parking lot across from it.  Once there then scan for us near the restrooms, Grinnell Glacier trailhead, or info/hotel center. Hopefully we will be obvious.

Optional After Hike Event : Glacier Rawhide Angus & Ale or whatever we can find in West Glacier.

    I just got back from doing trail maintenance on the Swift Current pass. Hope you enjoy it! :)

    Be sure to check the weather. Rain gear may be useful.

    I am planning to do the shorter version of the hike, taking the boat shuttle, it would be nice to have people do this route together and meet up with rest of the people later who would go on to the longer hike

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.
