Meeting Location: The trailhead for this route lies at the foot of Mt. Davidson, just below the city water tanks. From Main Street head west on Taylor Street which becomes Stewart Street. Shortly after this name change, take the first left on Greg Street. This street takes you to the foot of the water tanks and to a small city yard. There is parking for maybe 4-5 cars.

*** Ladies only hike, no kids and if you choose to bring a dog please know your dogs ability and water needs***

Note: If anyone would like to carpool or follow me up to the trail head, we can meet at the Starbucks on Mt Rose Hwy at 7:45 am I have room for 4 people. Please comment in the event, so that I know where to expect to meet you at. 


What to Bring:
Please bring a lot of water, sunscreen, snacks/lunch & extra layers as this is a peak and can be windy and cold at the top. This is a steep hike, with a small scramble at the top that will take us to the highest point in Storey County. We will be hiking at the pace of the slowest hiker. This will ensure that we do not get separated or lost on the trail. Please don’t hesitate to ask any hiking related questions!

This will be a members only event. In order to attend an official meetup, you MUST have a signed Liability Waiver on file. Please see the Group Rules for details/link to sign. http://bit.ly/GWHLiabilityWaiver This waiver clears you for all meetups! For official meetups we kindly ask that only ladies attend.
