Explore Marin Headlands--Miwok Trail/Hill 88/Coastal Trail/Express Bus & Dinner!

Join us for a another fun walk/hike & exploration through the beautiful & gorgeous Marin Headlands via the Miwok Trail to the top of Hill 88, which many hikers consider to be one of the places with the most breathtaking & picturesque views in the San Francisco Bay Area. Together, we will explore the eye-popping vistas from the breathtaking cliffs & magnificent breakers on the beaches. We will be exploring points of interest such as the Hill 88, Rodeo Lagoon & Beach with amazing views of Mount Tamalpais, Tennessee Valley & of the San Francisco Bay. Have a great time socializing while meeting new friends & enjoy lots of fun & laughter. Members in the group are always nice & friendly. We always have a lot of fun whenever we all get together with a couple of other meetup groups also invited. So join in on the fun! We look forward to seeing you there!

• No special shoes are required, but good supportive athletic shoes are advised. Even though the path is mostly on fire trails, there are some sections with loose gravel. Temperatures can change quickly, so layers of clothing is highly recommended. It is a section of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area & well maintained by the U.S. Park Service and Coast Guard.

We will meet at Starbucks for coffee & a meet & greet. At 12:30 pm, we will leave for the Express Bus to Marin Headlands (23 min). We will start at the Marin Headlands Visitor Center then head up the Miwok Trail, The Miwok Trail leads us to the top of mighty Hill 88, an old military installation with a helicopter port on the very top of the Marin Headlands. This area is what many consider to be the area with some of the most spectacular & amazing views in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area -- a large, decaying concrete structure that once held an enormous anti-ship gun now provides a platform for the most stunning vistas in the Headlands. We will witness some of Marin Headlands most beautiful natural habitat as we descend Coastal Trail back to Rodeo Lagoon Beach. It's quite a distance & a few hills, so you will get a pretty good workout. At 4:30 pm, we take the express bus back to San Francisco for some tasty Asian Food.

• BEFORE MEETING UP: Be sure to grab your lunches, drinks & snacks for our hiking exploration. Be sure to have a healthy snack handy & a bottle of water in case of dehydration & blood sugar drops due to exercising several hours. Conveniently, there are plenty of stores, shops & delis in the area.

    Hi,
    I'm interested in going, but would like to know the estimated distance (ie 3 miles? 10?) I have an almost healed injury, so some hiking is good, but 8 - 10 miles would be beyond what I an do right now. Also, would it be possible to meet y'all in Marin?
