Full Moon Hike at Ojito Wilderness

  • October 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM

The Ojito during a full moon is quite a spectacular place to visit. We'll carpool from the Target parking lot, leaving promptly at 6 PM, and should arrive at the mountain bike parking lot around 6:45 PM. Driving distance one way is probably around 50 miles, with 6-8 on decent gravel roads. Hiking distance will be around 4-6 miles. Elevation gain is very minor, till coming back and then we should gain maybe[masked] feet. NO DOGS OR WHINERS! Most everyone is welcome, but there are somethings you need to take into account. 1. It will be dark. 2. It will most likely be very cool. 3. Don't expect to use your flashlight much (it blinds the others). 4. Lots of holes in the Ojito. 5. The ground can be rough. 6. Crocagators come out at night. I would rate this hike as Moderate. For more information ask your questions on this site or if necessary call me at[masked]-8189. Mike and Ivan will not be on this hike as they don't drive well at night. Riders need to be willing to reimburse their drivers at the rate of $.10 per mile round trip. If you just like to sign up for activities and then cancel at the last minute, I will remember you!

    We had a pretty good time! The weather was perfect for hiking, just a little bit of wind. The group got along just fine. NO WHINERS! We went about 7.5 miles under brillant moon! Thanks to Bonnie for the food and drink!

    I got stuck at work, so my guest and I won't make it. I was really looking forward to this one, but I hope you all enjoy the beautiful moon and lovely evening! No babies yet Bonnie?

      Larry, with the construction at Paso & 25, it may take a long time to get on 25 north. Will you consider changing the meeting place?

    Larry,
    My grand babies are due in a few days. Hopefully the end of the month. However, if they arrive in the next week I will be in Dallas to welcome them to this world. Forgive me if I miss this 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.
