Easy Hike - Lonnie Loop from the Visitor Center

This hike is rated EASY, however, the trail is rocky so I recommend wearing sturdy footwear.

Come out for a hike from the 7th Street entrance to North Mountain Park. This is an easy hike and perfect for beginners or if you'd just like to do an easy one for a change. The trails are relatively flat with some gentle ups and downs, and one short but steep hill. We'll take the #100 trail from the 7th Street parking lot to the #306 trail then back to the #100 in a big loop. Bring a flashlight or headlamp, part of the hike will be after dark. You're encouraged to bring snacks, cameras, and must bring at least 1+ liter of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.

This is a combined event with Trail Mix, we will be hiking at a moderate pace.

    Simply another great hike! Thanks for leading Lonnie (and for sweeping Steven), and thanks for the educational lesson regarding cockroaches. :)

      Shoot. That goes to show I've _never_ been a good student.

    This was my 2nd hike and although I didn't complete the whole loop I hope to attend more hikes to get more conditioned. Both times I hiked I was impressed with what a nice group of people this is.

    I can't leave work until 6:25 but am only about 10 minutes away. I'm going to be all ready and leave right at 6:25. I didn't RSVP because I don't want to hold you up. I'll try to catch up with you if the group has already left if that is ok?

    If anyone would like to meet for a bite to eat before the hike, I'll be at Whole Foods (10810 N Tatum Blvd) at about 5:15 PM. I'll be at one of the outside tables.

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.
