Hike Route Map

Take an afternoon vacation and enjoy a lovely 4 hour hike that affords spectacular ocean, mountain, and bay vistas. I’m including several deeply forested paths and the inevitable anecdotes about my family. I will then bring you to my favorite memorial bench on the mountain… where we’ll all be treated to the BEST sunset over the Pacific within 100 miles! Attendee’s may want to dine together post-hike (Tamalpie in Mill Valley is my favorite post-hike group meal).

    The 11 women on this hike would have made Dad O'Rourke very happy... sharing the beauty of this day, the beauty and uniqueness of the stories that brought us all together... So very much to be grateful for. Thank you all...
