Muir Woods to Stinson Beach Hike, 9.5 mi--2,730ft Elevation Gain

This event is being co-organized with

Professional Latinos Having Fun (¡En español!). http://www.meetup.com/ProfesionistasLatinos/

This is a great scenic hike just north of San Francisco. On clear days the hike offers exceptional views of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge and stunning coastal views.

This hike is not for beginners. You must have recently hiked a trail with similar distance and elevation.

Hike Description:

Start Tim: 10 a.m.

Distance: 9.5 miles

Elevation gain: 2,730ft

Difficulty level: Intermediate/Advanced (not for beginners)

Pace: 2- 2.5 mph

Park along Muir Woods Road.

Muir Woods is the starting point of this hike. We will meet at the Muir Woods parking booth entrance and take the Dipsea Trail to Stinson Beach. Dipsea trail begins with a forested trail and ends with magnificent ocean views. The trail has several steep plunges and climbs and switchbacks. Once again, this hike is not for beginners.  Some areas of the trail will be slippery and wet. We will also be climbing stairs. There is poison oak throughout the trail so be cautious.

Bring plenty of water and snacks.  We will have lunch at Breakers Café in Stinson Beach.
