Hike Mt. Tam!

Mt. Tam is considered as one of the more popular state parks in the Bay Area -- unfortunately some of us haven't experienced it yet, so I figured we'd launch the first of our hiking trips here. I've heard the views atop Mt. Tam are beautiful. I was thinking we could follow a morning hike with a picnic. I suggested Sept. 14 but I'm open also to doing this on the 15th if that date works better for most of us. Also open to carpool options from SF.

    It was great meeting all of you today! I enjoyed the hike and getting to know everyone! See you all in future events insha Allah. Thank you Zohal and Harris for arranging this hike, and the route had bus coverage too.. Great planning :) I look forward to the next one - just make sure there are alternative transportations other than our feet.

      Really Sorry that you had to go back due to the confusion Zahar.

    • Bahar

      Thanks so much Harris, Sayed, and Shoeb for your kind words. No worries about the confusion. It was partly my fault to decide last minute to join you all, not bring my phone charger with me and not put enough gas in my car the night before. The photos look amazing. I am glad you all had a beautiful day. God is running EVERYTHING so I am sure there is a reason I had to wait for the next opportunity enshallah :) Bahar

    This is going to be my second hike and excited!. Who wants to carpool from near Sunnyvale / Cupertino?. Either I can pick up or can join in one of the cars.

    September 12, 2013

    • Shoeb M.

      Awesome. See you guys tomorrow morning. I'll be there around 8.00 ish.

      September 13, 2013

    • Sadia

      My foot is hurting a bit so I think I'll skip the hike today

      September 14, 2013

  • Afsha

    FYI, the GPS may not find the right location but keep going on panaromic hwy and you will see the pan toll ranger station with a parking lot.

    September 14, 2013

  • Zohal

    So the plan is to meet at 10 AM. Should we meet at Mt. Tam or the Mill Valley Library? I was told they're on the same street but when I Google-mapped it, the park looks like its a 6.4-mile distance from the library. What suggestions do you guys have?

    September 13, 2013

    • Shoeb M.

      Confirmed. 6424 Panoramic hwy at 10.00am

      September 14, 2013

    • Shoeb M.

      See you guys.

      September 14, 2013

  • Shoeb M.

    Guys. FYI. Carpooling from South Bay Four of us are meeting up in Sunnyvale tomorrow morning at 8.00am near Starbucks -
    1291 S Mary Ave, Sunnyvale, CA[masked]http://goo.gl/maps/lCa9q

    Currently, its the four of us and one car..If more people turn up perhaps we can make two groups of three or more and take another car.

    September 13, 2013

    • Zoheb

      I will try and join you guys

      September 14, 2013

  • Zoheb

    Anyone carpooling from the Sunnyvale area?

    September 13, 2013

  • HK

    Did the time get switched to 11?

    September 13, 2013

    • HK

      That's what I thought :-) I just noticed the meetup page said 11.

      September 13, 2013

    • Zohal

      Still 10 :)

      1 · September 13, 2013

  • M.S.

    Hi all, anyone driving from SF that still has a spot in your car?

    September 11, 2013

    • Harris M

      Ditto, same here!

      September 13, 2013

  • Abdurrahman A.

    I live in Daly City. Is there any space available in anyone's car left?

    September 12, 2013

    • Abdurrahman A.

      sorry for the late reply, my schedule just cleared up!

      September 12, 2013

  • Sadia

    How long do u think the hike will take?

    September 12, 2013

    • Zohal

      I think the duration will ultimately depend upon the trail we decide to hike. We can figure that out in the morning, along with whether we want to all stick together or break up in groups so that those who want to challenge themselves and those who need to leave early can both be accommodated. I'd say give yourself at least 4 hours for this hike? This is admittedly coming from someone who hasn't been to Mt. Tam; veterans, please feel free to chime in.

      September 12, 2013

  • Zohal

    Some things to consider:
    - it'd be wise to bring at least 1 liter of water to carry with you.
    - maybe pack a sandwich or two for when you get hungry.
    - bring a camera for pics, if you'd like.
    - hat, visor, sunblock and layered clothing are also advised.
    - I recommend we hike the steep ravine trail to Stinson beach, but I'm open to other trail options. Steep ravine is a moderate hike, duration is about four hours. I'll update if I think of anything else. For now the plan is to meet at the Mill Valley library @ 10 AM.

  • Harris M

    Hi everyone - The hike is this Saturday! A few items to discuss:

    1. I changed the time to 10am.
    2. Where should we meet?
    3. If you have car and can take people, please respond to this message and let us know where you are coming from
    4. Please update your RSVP if you can no longer attend
    5. It will be around 80 degrees so please plan accordingly. Thanks!

      I will be driving from SF too. I have two spots left in my car...i can pick the folks from 24 street bart station

      September 10, 2013

    • Ahmed

      What time to meet at 24th st station? I guess closest station for car parking would be Glen park. I would be interested to join the carpool.

      September 10, 2013

  • mg

    Sorry, but I've had a work obligation come up. Would love to join you all on another hike sometime!

    September 10, 2013

  • Afsha

    Is it possible to change the start time to 10 am?
    It's a long drive from the South Bay.

      Yes please. For South Bay folks 10 is a better start time.

      September 9, 2013

    • Sayed

      10 should be good... enough time for everyone to drive and get on time.

      September 9, 2013

  • Noman

    What time we will finish the hike. Do we have any estimation.

    September 9, 2013

    Any chances of date change?

    August 21, 2013

    • Zohal

      Hey Nazia! Try to make it on the 14th if you can, but don't worry we will plan more hikes in the future. This is hopefully the first of many this fall.
