Hike & Potluck w/ Bay Views at China Camp State Park

Some of what you'll see on this hike... 

 This will be about a 7+ mile hike w/ an elevation gain of approx 600'. Oh and very pretty. The rating is Pretty (for good views) and Easy-Moderate (for hiking). Obviously the rating depends on your condition. For me, I expect this one will be difficult  ;-)

An online 5 Star review had this to say... "Great place to: ride your bike, run, site see, critter watch, take in the natural beauty, make out!, reflect, skip rocks and get away from it all."

That's enough for me - hike, enjoy the people and scenery, sip some vino - YES!

What To Bring:

Vino! (and cups)

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen

1-2 liters of cold water (1/2 fill and refrigerate, then top w/ ice in the a.m.)

Snacks for the vino/snack break

Food for the potluck (sliced sandwiches, salads, meats/cheeses/breads/crackers, wraps, chicken, dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa,  - be creative.)   Sharing the meal is part of connecting w/ everyone.

Drinks, drinks, drinks! Vino,  tea, juice, beer, - whatever whets your whistle.

If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect - if you haven't, then be prepared for fun!

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

 Please note:

There are no wineries in the park, sooooo bring those bottles!

There will be a vino/snack break along the hike, and later we'll stop at a picnic area for the potluck. 


From Highway 101 in San Rafael, exit at N. San Pedro Road and follow to China Camp.

GPS [masked],[masked]

Plan on parking outside the park, on the side of the road by the park entry.

We will be joined by folks from other grps, so make some new friends!

    We have the coolest 13 YO son who just hiked Yellowstone for 17 days. We were hoping to bring him but if he's too young, let us know. I'm 47 and my husband is 54. If we are "too old" let us know that too!
