This place is seriously gorgeous and we had a blast there last time.

Alamere Falls is a little known California landmark, and this is an excellent hike along the California Coast Trail starting from the Palomarin trailhead near Bolinas. It is incredibly pretty with amazing ocean views and lush vegetation.

This is an 8+ mile easy to moderate hike, w/ little elevation gain and  a somewhat challenging scramble down to the beach (Two of us always help everyone get through the scramble).

This is a combined event w/ other Meetup Grps and a good opportunity to make new friends.

 

 

What to bring:

Vino! and cups

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, sunscreen, hat

Snacks/vino

Lunch  and food to share (dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips, cookies, use your imagination - hopefully not too much sugar.)

At least 1 liter of water (2 is better)

Anything else you want to drink (wine, beer, tea, juice, etc.)

Sunscreen and a hat.

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

 

 


Directions to trailhead:

GPS [masked],[masked]

Take Hwy #101 to San Rafael, and take the Sir Francis Drake Blvd. exit. Drive west 20 miles to Olema, then drive south on Hwy #1 for 9.1 miles to Bolinas Rd. (unsigned). Turn right and drive 1.8 miles to Mesa Rd. Turn right and drive 4.7 miles to parking lot and Palomarin trailhead.

 

 

 

 

Game Plan:

Beautiful hike through forest, ferns, coastal views, passing Pelican Lake, then lunch on the beach next to the falls!   Plan on spending a gorgeous day.

 

For those who want, we can go grab a beer and some tacos afterwards.

    Is there anyone that can give me a ride off the Dublin Bart station or anywhere off the Hacienda Exit on 680? I'd be more than happy to pitch in for gas:))

      Hi Jesper, are you coming from Noe Valley? (not sure if you mean to write that instead of "Nor valley"? If so, do you think I could catch a lift? I am in cole valley but could bike to your place. Thanks!

    This is my first meetup for this group. Is everybody meeting at the location or is there a place for carpool? I'm coming from the central valley

    • Chas

      Hi Chloe, We meet at the location, though you can certainly set up a carpool that meets elsewhere.

    I'm looking for a ride. I'm coming from the East Bay area. I'm open to meeting you at a BART station in Oakland, Richmond or SF or stops that are off the I-80, I-880 or 101. I would be more than happy to give you gas money for the ride. Thanks, Ting
