NOTE: The last portion of this walk is a very steep, very narrow trail down to the beach at Alamere Falls. The end of the trail requires using a rope to scramble down a sheer drop to the beach. For this reason I am restricting this to 20 people. To avoid no-shows I will be charging $5 for this event which I will put towards the dinner at The Pelican Inn after the event. As with all my events all attendees come AT THEIR OWN RISK!
Directions/meeting point: (the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable) the meeting point will be at the entrance to Palomirin trailhead at the end of Mesa Rd in Bolinas (NOTE: The last 1.5 miles or so is NOT PAVED) . I'd recommend using this link to find our meeting point. I will be driving my Silver Subaru Impreza WRX, license plate ending in 468. I'll be wearing this black Sanzaru Games hoodie. I'll send out my cell to RSVPs (but as always there is no guarantee of reception)
This week we'll be hiking the coastal trail to Alamere Falls. It is an amazing hike along the Pacific to Alamere Falls, where Alamere Creek drops down to the sea. The hike is a little over 8 miles and fairly flat other than the last 1/2 mile or so which is very steep (see note above!). See trail map here for more details. Hopefully the weather will be good, but be prepared for rain and mud. Also be sure to avoid Poison Oak, which can be found on most bay area trails.
If anyone wants to carpool, I'll be driving up from the Alamo Square district of San Francisco.
Dogs are not allowed on this trail unfortunately. After the hike we'll be heading to the Pelican Inn in Muir Beach, the $5 fee for this hike will be put towards the check for the meal.
