Day on Angel Island: Hike, BBQ/Picnic, Party - Serious Fun!!!

  • May 11, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members












PLEASE NOTE:  Either meet at the Tiburon ferry at 9:45 or on the island at the picnic area to the right of the dock, past the open field w/ the museum.  The hike starts at approx 10:45



The Plan:

Since this is the Spring edition we'll hike 2.5 miles to the top of Mt Livermore for a 360* view of the Bay Area (approx a 775' gain), then come down via the trail on the backside of the island for a total of about 5.5 miles.  Not a rough hike by any means, and of course the rating is contingent upon your condition.



What to bring:

Vino (and cups)

Snacks and vino for the hike.

Your appetite!

A cooler w/ ice and plenty of food

Food to BBQ (bring a small gas stove)

Sandwiches, salads, deserts, the works!  As always I'm hoping for plenty of ethnic food.  Not just boring hamburgers and hot dogs!  We're talking variety here, and lots of spicy food!

Plenty of Vino - we had some really nice bottles last time

Beer, water, soda, whatever you want to whet your whistle

Chips, dips, snacks, and plenty to share

Whoever brought the paella last time, pls bring it again - I loved it!

Layered clothing, sunscreen & hat

Hiking boots are not necessary, just decent hiking shoes - even tennies will do for this one

$5 admin fee


Your sense of humour and desire for fun is an absolute must!This event is posted on several other istes and will be a large party, so if you're into fun, this one's for you!



The hike is optional, so if you want to come chill while we hike and then eat, drink, and be merry w/ the rest of us after the hike - do it!   It would be nice to have a few people stay w/ the coolers/food while we hike.

Typically several of us ride the last ferry then go to Guaymas for drinks, chips & salsa, snacks, etc.  It's a great way to end the day.

      Hi Fran, yes come in the afternoon. Meet at the picnic area to the right of the dock, past the open field w/ the museum. If you don't see a large grp that means we're still hiking. See you then.
