Hi Everyone,

Here is a hike that I am interested in doing- what do you guys think? It's still a 250m climb up to the ridge, so I may have to stop every 50m :) but I think it will be much less busy than Rawson Lake. From everything I've read and heard it's best we keep the dogs on leash for the most part

    Good morning! Have you decided on a location yet?
    It is recommended to keep dogs on leash on the Rawson lake trail as it's prime bear country... http://www.doghikingcanada.com/...­

      Yes, I know, I've been thinking about that and I wouldn't want the dogs to attract any uninvited guests to the party. I didn't know about this website! Thanks! We could do Rawson, but I'd prefer something a little easier

      Thanks, Kathryn, for posting that link. I didn't know about it either and being relatively new to the area, I think it will be a great resource. :-)

      rescheduled if you would like to join!

  • Heather O.

    Hi guys, sorry I didn't think this had any attendees, so I want paying attention. I still want to do this so I'll reschedule it. I was just thinking to get out to kananaskis, somewhere less known so they could be off leash. Of course you are always taking a risk of a fine. Hike up the 4 hours maybe?

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.
