Memorial Day Hike to the Top of Mt Burdell w/ a Potluck on top!

  • May 27, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We last did this one in Dec, and the views from above were fantastic!

This will about a 6 mile hike w/ an elevation gain of about 1200'.

Some may consider this strenuous, depending on your condition.  I rate it as moderate.



The Plan:

I call it fun on the trail!

We'll hike a bit, then take a vino/snack break by the side of a small creek. Next we'll continue up towards the top of the world (at least in the Novato area), where we'll have our potluck lunch and enjoy the views in several directions.

Any questions can be directed to some third party service in The Philippines, India, Pakistan, or somewhere else where they handle problem solving and trouble shooting.  W/ my kindergarten education it's clearly over my head.





Hwy 101 to Novato off at San Marin Dr.

Head West on San Marin approx 2 miles and turn Right on San Andreas Dr.

Follow San Andreas close to the top and park in the residential area.  We'll jump on the trail there.

What To Bring:

Vino and cups!

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

At least 1 liter of water (2 is better).  Fill your bladder/bottles 1/2 way and refrigerate the night before, then top off w/ ice in the a.m. and you'll have chilled water all day.

Vino/snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike

Food - for our potluck up top (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, sliced sandwiches, salads, cheese/crackers, deserts - be creative!)

Drinks - vino, beer, tea, lemonade, whatever wets your whistle.

If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect.   The vino is required to be a part of this hike... OK, not really, but it's always nice when the vino to hiker ratio is high!

$5 activity fee


And as always, Your Sense of Humour is required!


This hike is posted to other Meetup sites so expect to make new friends.

    I too would appreciate a ride from SF, if anyone has a spare spot in their car. I live in the Mission, but can meet anywhere.
