Always wanted to check out the backside of Burdell? Been meaning to get there, but keep forgetting the vino? Say no more - here's your opportunity, not just to scope it out, but to do it w/ the merry madcappers in this grp! Don't even think of telling me you don't just love the idea. Remember what Vadar said, "Resistance is futile".
Well then, that settles it - Burdell it is. We'll hike, we'll picnic/potluck, we'll vino, we'll relax, we'll chat, we'll enjoy.
All the usual suspects will be there, and all the usual rules apply. Rule #1 Chill, Rule #2 Have Fun, Rule #3 Pass The Vino!
Need I say more?
Wondering where the vino fields are in Novato? Well, that's easy. The Usual Suspects will be bringing the vino into the fields of Mt Burdell for a fun filled afternoon of socalising in the sun!
This will be about a 5-6 mile hike w/ about a 250' elevation gain w/ plenty of time to kick back in the fields and meadows. The rating is easy to moderate depending on your condition. This should be easy for most people.

Vino and cups
Good Hiking Boots/shoes
Layered clothing, sunscreen and hat
Snacks/vino and cups
FOOD, and more food (cut up sandwiches, wraps, meats/cheeses/sourdough/crackers, salads, dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips, deserts, use your imagination.)
