Bay Area Adventure- Hiking, Kayaking, Social Events & More! Message Board › From Cherie- Re: Bass Lake/ Alamere Falls Hike 5/29
This is going to be an awesome day. Please be on time since we
will leave promptly at 10am.
Head towards stinson Beach, I like to go up Mt tam instead of
the coast route but either way gets you there.
The town of Bolinas likes to take down their sign to their
town, so follow these instructions
Take the first Left after the wetlands, bolinas town never has
a sign, you just have to know to take the first left after the
water wetlands end after stinson beach area.
Take the next left, You'll pass a school house, keep driving.
You'll see a sign for the Audobon Bird society, take that
Right, follow the road, it turns into a dirt road and dead
end's to the parking lot.
Here is a general map, google Bass lake, bolinas, and it will
give you exact instructions. I can't seem to get a good copy of
it, zoom on in to understand what I wrote. IT IS CONFUSING, so
give yourself plenty of time, if you never did this before.
Will meet at the stairs and bathroom at 9:50am. we will leave
promptly at 10am. so make time to get lost and find your way,
if you haven't been here before. It's a large group, of
adventurers, hikers, musicians, geologist.
Bring layers of clothes, it gets hot then cold at the ocean
Lots of poison Oak, alcohol gets the oil off, so during those
tight spots, rub your legs and arms off with alcohol to avoid
getting the itch, you'll thank me later.
You need lots of water, food, walking stick, backpack, towel,
first aid kit, blanket to sit on, great hiking shoes, there
are scrambles on this hike.
Bass lake is about 2 miles inland and feel free to stop there
and swim, eat, listen or play music
Alamere falls another 1.5 miles with rock scrambles
