Marin Hiking Meditation

This month we'll meet at the intersection of Muir Woods Road and the Redwood Creek Trail.  This area is usually full of parked cars overflowing from Muir Woods along Muir Woods Road, so you may have to either hunt or just keep driving west on Muir Woods Road until find a spot.  So come early to give yourself time to park and walk to the trailhead.

DON"T USE THE MEETUP MAP.  It doesn't have enough detail.  Use the google map of the meeting location at the trailhead:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=redwood+creek+trail+and+muir+woods+road,+mill+valley,+ca&hl=en&ll=37.886218,-122.568305&spn=0.007959,0.010461&sll=37.886006,-122.568197&sspn=0.00796,0.010461&t=h&hnear=Muir+Woods+Rd&z=17

This hike is a bit on the long side as it is a loop trail, but it is beautiful and exhilarating.  We'll take the Redwood Creek Trail to the Miwok Trail and then take the Dias Ridge Trail down to Highway 1 and then return on the Redwood Creek Trail.  The first part is in forest, and then at the top of the ridge it's clear all the way down to Highway 1 at Muir Beach, and that stretch has spectacular views of the Pacific.  Then much of the hike back on Redwood Creek is semi-shaded and flat.  We'll probably stop to break somewhere along the Dias Ridge Trail once or twice.

**PLEASE NOTE*** We/I have no idea if cells will work here, so please take the time to get directions (both what I wrote above and using "get directions" from google) and milage markers before you leave so that you can meet us at the designated place and time.  We'll wait 10 to 15 minutes for everyone and then will begin the hike.  Let me know if you have any questions. 

Looking forward to seeing and hiking with you all!

    If there's a chance I could get a ride with someone, I'd appreciate it. I live in the East Bay, but could also come to a meeting point in SF

  • Min T.

    I love to join this fun event for the first time. I need a ride from SF, living near Castro. I can meet you in the city that is convenient for you and share gas/toll cost. Thanks!

      Hey Mike, I will be coming from San Leandro and can pick you up. I do plan to leave extra early so that I have time to park and deal with traffic. Shot me a text[masked]

    Hi :-) I am from SF and new to the group. I am looking for a ride to and willing to share gas and ride costs. Thank you

  • calvin c.

    I could not find parking within a mile or 20 min of looking so I drove back home 1 hr. Will try to connect with group again sometime.

    January 4, 2014

    • Tim J G

      Hi Calvin, the hike wasn't today. It is scheduled for January 18th. And yes, it is probably extra jammed now due to the nearness of the holidays/New Years.

      January 4, 2014

    • calvin c.

      Thank you for the clarification. I guess I confused it with two other hikes I was considering today. At least I know where it is at now and to leave extra early to hike from the car to the trail head.

      January 4, 2014

  • Vincent

    Hi there - My friend and I live in SF and would definitely appreciate a ride! Looking forward to the hike!

    January 4, 2014

  • s.

    are there car pools to hiking events from SF?

    January 1, 2014

    • Tim J G

      Sorry, I didn't see this was a question until now. To answer your question, there are carpools. Just post on here that you are looking for a ride, and generally you can find someone to give you one.

      January 3, 2014

    • Steve

      I am happy to give rides from SF- Steve J

      January 4, 2014

  • Steven

    I haven't been able to go since the first hike and am eager to get back on the trails and do some communing!

    January 3, 2014

  • Jeff B.

    Can you estimate the total distance and elevation gain?

    Thanks!

    January 3, 2014

    • Tim J G

      Hi Jeff, I'm sorry, I don't know that information, and I'm terrible about figuring it out. By far, not my specialty. The elevation isn't that steep/high. This distance is maybe 4 or 5 miles in total, but that's just a guess. If anyone in the group is good at figuring this stuff out, please feel free to pipe in.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
