Let's Hike Angel Island and discover it's history

undefined

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Angel Island is the largest island in area of the San Francisco Bay. The island is so large that on a clear day, Sonoma and Napa can be seen from the north side of the island;San Jose can be seen from the south side of the island. The highest point on the island, almost exactly at its center, is Mount Caroline Livermore at a height of 788 feet (240 m). The island is almost entirely in Marin County, California, although, there is a small sliver (0.7%) at the eastern end of it (Fort McDowell) which extends into the territory of the City and County of San Francisco.

FUN and family friendly hike + ferry ride on historic Angel Island!!

 

What are the fees:

Ferry fees - Adults (ages 13 and over) $13.50 Children (ages 6 - 12) $11.50 Small Children (ages 3 - 5) $3.50 Toddlers (ages 2 and under) Free*

Parking Fee - $5.oo

 

What food to bring:

Bring a brown bag lunch and plenty of water. Feel free to bring some snacks to eat along the way.

 

What shoes to wear:

Wear comfortable shoes with good tread. I recommend hiking shoes that protect your ankles. We will be hiking mostly off paved roads which are dirt and rocky trails.

    I literally missed the boat -- well, in this case the ferry. I didn't find parking until 10:05 and I knew I wouldn't be able to catch the ferry. But it looks like you guys had a fun time, great pics!

    Hi, can you provide an information on the elevation change of the hike? Will it be steep?

    April 11

    • Cliff S.

      Hello Amelia, there is one area that will be steep and it's at the beginning of the hike. After that, it will be mild elevation change. The will be 75 percent on asphalt. I'll have to get back to you on the elevation change.

      The elevation gain will be 100 feet maximum.
