Hidden Gulch Falls & Fern Creek Canyon

Experience this very hard to find   waterfall hideaway.  It's less than 2 miles but it's more of a mini "Indie Jones" adventure.  So much variety in such a short trek.  A bit of everything.  Creek crossings, ledge walking, ropes to the bottom of the big falls & a scramble to the top of the upper falls.  A unique pine forest & huge bird nests, & more.  Then we will head off to the bird sanctuary in the Southern Point Reyes area have a wine picnic & then hike the super lush & oh so cool & green Fern Creek canyon.  At the bird sanc, we can see how they capture the birds for banding in the invisible nets. 

If time permits we can head into Bolinas for some seafood or whatever.

A great adventurous outing & not very difficult either. Cameras , yes.

Good shoes are needed for the waterfall portion.  All the usual food, water, drinks, snacks, hiking poles, trail bars, Fruit & nut packs , juice, soda, tea. & Wine are included. 

We will shuttle from L.L. as parking is very limited out there. several can ride w/me. 

This is very new for most members.  

cost: $25

    It was a wild & strange day. Just getting to the first location was not w/out danger. I can't figure out why 1/2 bailed out after the first hike portion?? But they did not seem like real adventurous hikers. They missed the wine lunch at the Bird Banding station & the very cool, beautiful, & hidden Fern Creek Canyon short hike. And then on just down the road a piece to the short 2 mile jaunt thru the giant Eucalyptus trees & down to the ocean. The views were breathtaking.
    Then we went to Wipe Out for a great dinner; again !!!

    WE ended up with a hardy & happy Eleven.

      I would have loved to stay longer. I am sorry I missed the beach and dinner but I had a commitment in The City. Loved the first two parts.
