      I'm planning on going with my Chacos. I've done some boulder-y hikes with them, so they should be ok for this.

    I'm thinking of joining this hike and bring my dog along. Does anyone know if dogs are allowed on all the trails of this hike?

    I think the N Judah last stop is close to the meeting point. I have hiked from a coffee shop there.

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.
