The always super cool "Alamere Falls " Ocean Trek.

  • This location is shown only to members

We only do this one once or twice a year so don't miss it.

It's a 9.5 mile R.T. trek.  We start under huge & tall Eucalyptus trees & head to  & along ocean cliff tops.  Fantastic views  North & South.  bring your camera.   Tourists come from far away & never get to see this area. 

We will go inland & head up thru a variety of lush & dark forests to  Bass lake where we can swim or keep going  past Pelican lake & on to the first set of waterfalls.  After the first set of falls we will have our wine picnic on top.  Then on down & under the wide falls that drop to the beach from above.  A very cool place to see & enjoy.  Many bring a bathing suit to sit under the falls. 

It's a long day; so be prepared with good hiking shoes & layered clothes.  We will have a fun dinner option following the hike.  Oysters & wine or whatever.   I have some good foodie places for you to try.   

I'll have for all:  water, Juice, Tea, lattes, soda, Cheese/crackers, snacks, Gourmet Fruit & Wine packs, energy & protein drinks, Trail bars, hiking poles & wine.

cost $25.  Meet at larkspur landing for more info, bathrooms, etc.   We will shuttle from here.  I'll have alternate  meetup (Hike) location info later.

Don't miss this one !!!

    Both Michael and I really enjoyed the hike! Good people, good weather, great views, and fun adventure. Oh yes, and Tom the snacks and wine were awesome! You rock, Tom! We'll catch another hike soon. Have some things on our schedule, but we'll be back. :)

    I can't believe so many didn't make this super outing.???? Not the sick or work ones.
    It was a long day & into the evening. But we were saved by all those who came from the other groups this time. It was one of the best outings of the year. We stopped and swam in Bass lake on the way back on the trail. Check out the pics & mine asap.

      That's what my boss said! I don't know how I managed to get sick in the middle of this summer sunshine but I've been a miserable mess all week. A real bummer because I was reallllly looking forward to this ocean trek.

    Hi,
    I just signed up for this and posted a message on the message board. I am hoping to catch a ride with someone to the meeting place. I live in SF and don't drive. Thanks. Look forward to hearing from anyone who can give me a ride to Larkspur Landing.

      Hi Kathy and Anja, my husband, Michael and I (Andrea) live in Antioch. We would gladly pick you both up at the El Cerrito BART station. We will pay the toll for the bridge so no worries there.

    When do we pay you Tom? This is my first meetup with you guys. Thx

    If some do not wish to carpool/shuttle from L.Landing.
    Meet us in the lot at the end of Mesa rd. between 10:30 & 10:45 am. It may be packed w/cars & you will have to park far on the shoulder with all the white dust & walk to the trailhead. From hwy 101 , take Sir Francis Drake Blvd. West to Olema (hwy 1) . Turn left for 11 miles. Stay right & go on the West side of Bolinas lagoon. Go up a slight hill & turn right on Mesa Rd. Go under the big Eucalyptus trees all the way to the end. Cell phone coverage is spotty out there. I'll have a seaform green saturn with short ribbons on the antenna. [masked]
    There are bathrooms there.
