Important Notes.

** lots of street crossings, be careful watch for traffic**

** it will be very tough to keep track of everybody on this hike ** you have to keep up and pay attention where we are going.***

** bring $ 2 exact muni fare, for the ride back to downtown, ****

***or if you get lost you can always find a bus to get you back***

this hike will have plenty of spot to bail out*** if you know your way around with muni ***


waiver   , I will bring a copy / sign in sheet,


**Meeting point**

just outside the Powell Bart Station, the exit next to the cable car starting point at Powell Street and Market.

****I will be on the first bart train from the east bay which arrives at 8 55 at Powell, and should be at the meeting point at 9-905, I usually wait about 15 minutes, plan on leaving around 9 20 am***


Lunch , hopefully at the beach at lands end, possible a little later lunch


Weather forecast,  low clouds giving way to sunshine, high of 68 (as of Thursday night)

    I am on the waiting list, but do no worry if I cannot go I can always go hiking with another group. I like this long hiking trip. so do not hesitate to let me know if you have too many people going. I clearly understand.
