Mt Tam Hike & Potluck - Topple The Mountain To The Top & Chas' Birthday

  • Aug 30, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Well... I've been encouraged to let you guys know today is my birthday, so we'll see what happens.


This will be about a 7-8 mile hike  - rated Moderate to Strenuous -some parts will be strenuous (depending on your condition), w/ roughly a 1350' elevation gain, taking in Amazing Views from the Top of Tam, Laural Dell, and Cataract Creek.

Good idea to carb up for this one the night before.

Naturally we'll have a vino/snack break along the way, and then a potluck lunch a bit later - possibly at Laurel Dell.  Because of the strenuous nature of portions of this hike we'll likely take an additional (though short) break.  So let's get out there and topple the mountain! 


People have been known to get really excited on this hike! 

What To Bring:

Vino! (and cups) 

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

Vino/Snacks for our pre-lunch vino/snack break.  Energy bars are highly recommended.

Food (packed w/ carbs) and more food: meats/cheeses/breads/crackers, dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips - use your imagination.

At least 1 liter of water (2 is better) Fill w/ 1/2 water & 1/2 ice.

Anything else you want to drink (Beer, juice, tea, etc.) 

$5 activity fee

Please note: this hike is completely different than "From The Dam Up".


Directions:

GPS [masked],[masked]

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

This hike is posted to several Meetup grps, so this is a good opportunity to make new friends.

Catching a rest along the trail.


We're heading yup to the Russian River (Sonoma County) for the Unauthorized Rolling Stones dance concert afterwards!  See the posting here...

    Lots of fun and great people. A little to much focus on wine and rest breaks for me but might be perfect for you

    I'd love to join this hike. Is anybody leaving from Berkeley? If not, depending on what time we leave, I may be able to BART to SF.

      Hi Daniel. I didn't realize you only had a two-seater and that Stefan needed a ride too. If he's still going and needs a ride, I can take my car. I sent you an email yesterday. Thx
