Fitness Hike/Trail Run at Shaw Butte 5:30pm

This hike will be done as a clock-wise loop.

Distance: 4.5 miles with an elevation gain of about 800 feet in 1.2 miles

This is not recommended for beginners because of Pace and will be dark!  

UPDATE**** I will run the flat sections and hike the steeper ones with anyone that wants to follow, But YOU DON'T HAVE TO! there is always people that just hike at a very steady pace. MIKE SNOW will be leading the hiking group **** We start promptly at 5:30. Please arrive a few minutes early, we don't like to leave anyone behind but need to start on time.

This is a fitness hike. We will be keeping a fast pace, some of us may run a little on the flater areas and the whole way down (You don't have to!). There is no sweep, so must be familiar with the area. Hike at your own risk. Please evaluate your ability before attending.

We will meet at the Visitor Center on the west side of 7th St., just south of Thunderbird. There is a circular seating area in front of the Center by the restrooms, this is where the trail head starts. 

[color=red] BRING A HEAD-LAMP OR FLASH-LIGHT!. Please hydrate before, during and after the hike!

If you have questions, feel free to contact us!

      Do get upset when movies have glaring geological inaccuracies, and point them out to everyone else in the theatre

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.
