Important Things you need to know

 ***The Ferry leaves at 10:40, we meet10:15- 10:30, ****


Parking?? I have no info about free parking / cheap parking you are on your own there.

Best to take BART, Caltrain etc.

This hike will be following sidewalks, about 8-9 miles dirt trails,

 plenty of street crossing required, make sure to be careful, bikes will be around in areas on trail/sidewalk as well

You can bail out of this hike anytime and catch a bus (I think Fare is $ 2) *** but you are responsible to know where are you going, I am not a expert on city buses, trams etc.

 I will do my best to keep track of everyone, but that can be tough, as always* you are responsible to keep up with the group or being ok on your own, walking/ taking the bus / trolley / cable car **

Don't forget that Lunch / Snack / Water etc. *** Make sure to dress in layers as it may be chilly / windy on ther Bridge ***Foggy, Chilly etc, you know summer in the City

** if you have a street map of the city, might want to bring it, ** I won't have a map with the route high lighted

I will send out my phone number on Friday,

* Geocaching, I may go for a few geocaches and take a quick break in order to locate them.



Lunch , *** probably a late lunch once we arrive at Kirby Cove and we can sit on the beach.
