Hike Tiburon and Belvedere Island

Let's take the ferry over to Tiburon to hike the Tiburon area, including Blackie's Pasture and Belvedere Island. We will take the ferry from Pier 41 in San Francisco at 11:45 a.m. and arrive in Tiburon at 12:35. We will take the  ferry back at 6:45 p.m. which arrives back in SF at 7:15.   The ferry schedule did change and these are the new times.  Marin people and others not wishing to take the ferry, can meet us on the grassy area next to the ferry terminal.

This hike comes from a book called Power Hikes San Francisco. I have never done the hike before but the instructions from the book seem pretty straightforward. However there is the possibility we may make a wrong turn somewhere and get slightly off track (but not for long). If this does not suit you, please wait for us to repeat the hike possibly at a future time where we have the route 100% down. Please bring a lunch as we will take a lunch break and bring water. Be on time for the ferry because the ferry will not wait. Ferry info is here http://www.blueandgoldfleet.com/ferry-services/ferry-schedules/and we will meet right in the area of the ticket booth. You should purchase round trip tickets and note that Clipper cards are not accepted on this ferry.

Happy hour to follow in Tiburon before we head

back on to the ferry. Hope to see you there.

    May 10, 2014

  • Puneet

    I couldn't get out of Alameda as the bridges were closed and after waiting for 30 mins in my car, I turned back and returned home. It sucks but I hope to join you on another hike :-(

    Hi Susan, Do you have an approximate mileage/number of hours, etc. for just the hiking part?
    Thanks.

    May 9, 2014

    • Susan O.

      The book says 9.5 miles and 5 hours of hiking part. This might be off though. As previously stated: I have not done this hike before. So we will find out.

      May 9, 2014

    • KK

      Okay, thanks.

    Hi, I will need to leave early. Is the route such that I could be near the starting point at 4:30? I apologize for the last-minute change - I was looking forward to the HH part of the UHHH, but will have to join y'all next time for that.

      Thanks, Susan. I messed up on my calendar and have a conflict later in the day. I will need to cancel but it sure doesn't look like there will be a shortage of hikers! Have a great Tiburon day!!

    Btw, it looks like there is a summer ferry schedule and there is a later departure to SF, in case anyone wants to linger for dinner, etc.

    Power Hike? Does that mean this is a neckbreaker? I'm not going to take the ferry so if anyone wants to catch a ride & help with bridge toll or gas I can drive 2 or 3 people.

    May 6, 2014

    • Susan O.

      I did include a meeting place in Tiburon in the event description: "Marin people and others not wishing to take the ferry, can meet us on the grassy area next to the ferry terminal." The ferry is scheduled to arrive at 12:35.

    what is the distance of the Power Hike? any info on elevation? thanks for organizing! for the person asking about ferry... refer to http://www.blueandgoldfleet.com/

    April 12, 2014

    • Susan O.

      The book provides no info about the elevation, sorry, and I think we will try to add some by going up on the ridge near St. Hilary's church. I am going to guestimate about 7 miles.

      April 13, 2014

  • Cindy H.

    Susan Please let me know how much a round trip ticket is. Thank you.

    April 12, 2014

    • Susan O.

      I suppose I can look that up on line later.

      April 12, 2014

    • Susan O.

      Ok I looked up on line and it says that the adult fare is currently $11 each way. I suppose the price could change between now and then, but hopefully not.
