Directions/meeting point: (the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable) the meeting point will be at the entrance to Redwood Creek Trail in Muir Beach (at the junction of Highway One and Muir Woods Road). I'd recommend using this link to find our meeting point. There is road-side parking next to the trail head (but if its full Muir Beach is a short walk away and has parking). I'll send out my cell to RSVPs (but as always there is no guarantee of reception)
This week we'll be doing something a bit different, we are hiking to the German Tourist Club an amazing location in the heart of Muir Woods. Three times a year they are open to the public and this Sunday is Sommerfest. The festival will feature polka band, traditional group dances in traditional dress, a menu of traditional foods and of course, excellent beers complete a fun-filled day for all ages. Tickets to the event are $15 and can be purchased at the Tourist Club on the day of the event.
If you would rather not hike to the event, the purely beer/sausage/lederhosen/dirndl-related part of the day is a separate event I am running for the Bay Area Beer Socials group.
We'll take the Redwood Creek Trail from Muir Beach, then cross the road to Dipsea trail which we will take to Sun Trail which leads to the Tourist Club. The hike should be around 3-4 miles each way. This is a state park, so dogs are not allowed unfortunately.
