    If we see the conditions are not good, we can go to the indoor rock gym, or race a few laps down at the Go-Kart track. I'm still doing something! lol

    And the verdict is.... Let's do this! I will meet you all at 2pm. I will be wearing a black t-shirt that says SKILLET. We will wait at the base of the trail till 2:15 before we start climbing. See you there!!

      Hey Ceci, click on the link next to the address above, and a window will pop up with a map. If your coming south on Tatum, or North on 44th St., Go East on McDonald, and then take a quick right on Echo Canyon, it will lead to the parking lot.

    Everyone, it's 9am, the weather channel still says 30% chance of rain. Outside my window, it's pretty cloudy. I will wait till noon, then make a decision to do the hike, or move to the indoor rock climbing.

    If we get rained out, we could go Go-Kart racing again, or indoor rock climbing

    Paul, you are partially right... the Cholla side is still going to be open. However, most everyone I know climbs the Echo Canyon side, and the city website states- "Echo Canyon Trailhead and Summit Trail will be closed from Jan. 28 through fall."

    I should be done with the hike well before 6 months, thinking two weeks tops.

    Camelback is not closing. Just the echo canyon parking area is closing for 6 months for construction

    LOL, No Puking allowed Pam! Ok, in all honesty, it's a wonderfully challenging hike, and make no mistake, it's a bear! They rate it most difficult on the Phoenix city website- http://phoenix.gov/parks/trails/locations/camelback/echo/index.html But, also keep in mind, you don't have to go to the top. You can stop at any point, rest, or go back down. So, join us, the whole mountain is absolutely beautiful!

    Ok Rob, I've lived her 5 yrs & have never hiked it. Is it the trail that's a mile or so up & then back-or more? How strenuous is it? Just haven't hiked in a while & don't wanna puke! LOL

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.
