MINDFUL HIKERS LET'S HIKE LET'S FEAST! HIKE UP STEEP RAVINE & DOWN DIPSEA!

  • Mar 24, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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!

Elevation Gain: 1,080 feet
Distance: 5 miles
Carpool location:
parking lot in front of "Shore Line Cleaners" 203 Flamingo Mill Valley (corner of Flamingo and Shoreline)
Carpool time: 9:00 AM we leave at 9:15 promptly, please don’t arrive at 9:20 and feel that we didn't wait long enough.

*This will be a full day- expect to be back to our carpool location around 4:00PM
*These hikes are not appropriate for our pets.
ON THIS HIKE YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO BRING:

*water *snacks *layers of clothes *sunscreen *trekking poles (suggested but not necessary)

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.

    Today's hike was exactly what I needed, and was everything I've come to expect in Devi's outings: Beautiful, well selected route, with a great spot to share lunch, socialize and enjoy the view.

    This was my first mindful hikers hike. I am grateful to my car pool pals that things worked out. We had the pleasure of an outstanding group of people, a beautiful day, awesome beauty, an inspired leader and good food.

    Hi folks. I'm not sure how I missed the Shore Line Cleaners, but I did. So, because I was already there, I hiked up Dipsea trail and then took a little side trail that took me to my very own private swing and view of the coast. Glorious. I regret that I didn't get to meet all of you but I was with you in spirit! Next time perhaps I'll carpool with someone so I'm sure to get there!
