John Muir Birthday Hike in Guana

We’ll celebrate the birthday of John Muir on this date with a leisurely hike of about 4 miles in Guana. 

Please bring along your favorite quotation or journal entry of John Muir and we’ll read these aloud periodically as we stop and admire a variety of vistas of river, marsh and forest during our hike.

Please meet at 9:00 a.m. at the trail head for the Guana trails which is about 200 yards beyond the dam. The entrance to Guana (Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Reserve) and the dam is on the west side of AIA approximately 17 miles south of Butler Boulevard with the entrance just north of the Gate service station on AIA.

Please bring lunch, water, sun tan lotion and insect repellent. Children welcome. No pets please. There is a $3 entrance fee to Guana if you don’t have a pass.

    It was a real pleasure to celebrate John Muir's birthday with such a nice group of Sierrans.

    If you didn't come because of the weather, you really missed out. It was very comfortable, with a beautiful color on the marsh, due to the cloud cover, with no rain.

    Superb outing, thanks to Brian and all the great hikers (or "saunterers," as John Muir would prefer). Perfect morning to celebrate John Muir and to appreciate his legacy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
