Please see comments area for current contact information day of hike.


Come join us to an excellent midweek hike that's about 5.5 miles long prior to the weekend. The entire hike is awe-inspiring over terrain of beautiful scenery which includes a long waterfall that cascades into the river below where we'll stop to marvel at the view. This complete hike is over lush greenery of mountains, hills, amid a wide variety of trees. Past the river, we'll traverse a long uphill climb so you could experience breathing challenges and joint pain so keep these conditions in mind. The hike is classified as intermediate so be considerate before you rsvp.  We tailgate after the hike and generally wrap up by 8:30.

This is a dog friendly event so bring 'em along. They'll be grateful you did.

Bring water, headlamp, food/snacks/beverages to share, a smile and a gentle attitude.

Please follow these directions and not the map link.

We'll meet at the trailhead: Take the I-80 towards Reno and exit at Newcastle Rd. heading straight to Indian Hill Rd. Turn left at Auburn-Folsom Rd. and a right turn on Maidu Dr. Go straight on Maidu until it dead ends where you'll see a green gate (not the first one). Park along the sides.  The hike starts on the other side of the green gate down the hill.  If you just missed us, send a text to the leader or call out, we might still hear you.

    Shorter than expected - definitely not 5.5 miles - but still a great hike/workout!

    This will be my first Thursday hike. I am looking forward to it! Can't find my headlamp though. What are the chances that I will need it??

      Lots of us have headlamps and flashlights. The sun sets about 7:00 pm tonight and we will still have about 45 minutes to go, although I assume it will still be light for a while after sunset. You will probably need some sort of light, whether following someone else, or your own.

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.
