We hike up Steep Ravine Trail and down the Dipsea Trail.
Many hikers believe that Steep Ravine Trail offers the finest scenery on Mt. Tamalpais. Spectacular redwoods, ferns, mosses, tumbled trees, wooden bridges crossing Webb Creek, quiet pools and cascading waterfalls. The stretch of the Dipsea Trail we will be returning on, offers great vistas and views towards San Francisco, stone steps and very enjoyable hiking!
WE Hike Rain or Shine! Hope for Rain!

The Exotic Movable Feast ------------------------------
This feast idea was the inspiration of Mindful Hiker Andrew Di Genova. Here is how it works. We all bring something for ourselves to eat and something to share. I encourage you to bring foods that are unique to your culture or individual tastes. At the midway point in our hike, in a beautiful location, we prepare for our “Exotic Movable Feast”. Then we all share the wonderful exotic foods that each of us brought.
All hikes are offered by Devi Somers on a 'by donation, dana' basis.
Suggested donation for hikes $10.00. Dana (pronounced "dah-na") is a Pali word meaning generosity. Dating back to the time of the Buddha, there has existed an interdependence between those who offer the teachings and those who receive them.
