Angel Island: Hike, Potluck, BBQ/Picnic, Party, ~~~ Serious Fun!!! Pt 2

  • Sep 28, 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 Plan:

Since this is the Fall edition we'll hike around the perimeter of the island (about 5 miles) almost entirely flat other than the initial rise to the perimeter trail.  Not a rough hike by any means, and of course the rating is contingent upon your condition. There are great views of the bay and bridges, so bring your cameras!  This is typically the most popular event of the year!

We'll leave the coolers/food at the picnic area and only hike w/ some snacks and vino.

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.

What to bring:

Vino (and cups)

Vino and Snacks for the hike.

Your appetite!

A cooler w/ ice and plenty of food

Food to BBQ (someone bring a small gas stove)

Sandwiches, wraps, fish, 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, juice, tea, water, soda, whatever you want to whet your whistle

Chips, dips, snacks, and plenty to share

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

Layered clothing, sunscreen & hat

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

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour and desire for fun is an absolute must!

Map and Parking Information

Meet at the ferry dock at 9:45am - Ferry leaves at 10:00am sharp - they won't wait.

Return ferry runs 20 past ea hour. I.E. leaves island at 3:20pm, 4:20pm, last ferry is at 5:20pm.  Typically several of us ride the last ferry then go to Guaymas for drinks, chips & salsa, snacks, etc afterward.  It's a great way to end the day.

    Is anyone planning to take the 9:45 ferry from San Francisco? Are folks from SF actually driving to Tiburon and taking the Ferry from there?

      Hi Jess, Sorry for the delayed response. I exchanged emails with Desi who lives in Pleasanton. Seems like she'll drive and hopefully grab both of us. I'll send you my number so we can coordinate.
