NOTE changed meeting point: We now meet at the Muir Beach parking lot.
Directions/meeting point: (the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable) the meeting point will be at the entrance to Muir Beach parking lot. I'd recommend using this link to find our meeting point. There is a large parking lot at Muir Beach which I don't *think* has a fee (though I am unable to confirm online). 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 to Muir Woods via the Southern side of Mount Tam. We'll take the Redwood Creek Trail from Muir Beach then cut across to the Coastal View trail up the side of Mount Tam, before returning through Muir Woods via the Ben Johnson trail back to Redwood Creek Trail.
It should be around 8-10 miles or so with steep elevation gain in places, and (if the weather holds out) amazing views of Mount Tam and the Muir Woods redwoods. Hopefully the weather will be good, but be prepared for rain and mud.
If anyone wants to carpool, I'll be driving up from the Alamo Square district of San Francisco.
This is a state park, so dogs are not allowed unfortunately. If anyone fancies a post-hike beer and snack, I'll be heading to the Pelican Inn in Muir Beach after the hike.
