Strenuous "Super" Full Moon Dinner Hike to the top of Yerba Buena Island

This is a super big night for hikes and walks as it's the night of the Super Full Moon, the time of year when the moon is at its fullest and closest to earth.  The next time will be in August 2014.

Meet: 6:45, depart 7:00 pm sharp

Walk: Approximately 1.5 hours, 3.5 miles, 600 feet elevation all uphill and stairs to top.

Bring: Warm clothes, water, dinner or snacks and a sense of adventure! It's often windy.

Transportation: Bus 108 from SF.  There is no bus from Oakland. Easy parking near meeting point.

Celestial Bodies Schedule: Sunset 8:34 Moonrise 8:53 Last light 9:06

I scouted the route today and this is turning out to be a fairly fast-paced, strenuous hike to the top of Yerba Buena Island. You must be in very good cardiovascular shape to keep up.  We will stop for views and pics. If you have signed up and feel it's too much, please change your RSVP to "No." For a flat, slow option, you can tour Treasure Island on your own. After YBI, if there is time, we will explore a little bit of Treasure Island, too.

From 8:30-9:00+ pm, I plan on watching the sunset, bridge light show and moonrise while having dinner.  The vantage point for the light show isn't super close from TI, but it's still visible and the city lights are beautiful.

Heavy fog will cancel, so check for updates here or just look outside before heading out.

Waitlist Info: This event has a 'manual' waitlist. This means that when a spot opens up, everyone on the waiting list will receive an email. In order to claim the spot, you must visit this meetup event and RSVP "Yes". So watch your email closely. This approach avoids unintentional no-shows and ensures that the people who move up to "attending" are indeed available and interested. Thus, please update your RSVP to "No" if you can not attend.  No-showing is noted and may jeopardize your ability to attend future events.

    Weather is not good, it is already drizzling. Thanks for putting this together and look forward to join you next time.

    Did a harsh exercise. Plus I don't trust the weather. I'm going to have to be out this one. Supermoon/no supermoon, would love to do this another day. Weather supposed to be nice starting Friday.

    June 23, 2013

  • Diana

    Fog = cold and damp on island in middle in SF Bay. Overcast = no super full moon.

    June 23, 2013

  • Diana

    I'll have to trade my first outing with the group for another day when the weather is better. Hoping this doesn't count against me.

    June 23, 2013

    Parking? does anyone have info on parking? thx

      There should be abundant parking on Treasure Island in lots and elsewhere. I'm not sure if there will be many people visiting TI at this time.

      June 21, 2013

    • Zach T.

      Great!

    Just finished a bike ride with both quads cramping. I suspect I will not be recovered enough by this evening.

    Sorry folks. I won't be able to make it this time.

    did a long hike yesterday and looking for something warm and cozy tonight. Hope to see you all sometime soon. Enjoy the night!

    Sorry, but I think it's too much of a trek to get there for a cold, fog hike for me. Hope to join on the repeat hike. :)

    OK Active People, well as you see, the fog is rolling in, but there's a good chance we'll be below the fog bank and still see the bridge views from the top of Yerba Buena and some SF City Lights. No promises. Doubtful about the moon, but we'll learn a little bit about the history of TI and YBI, too. I'm not canceling unless there is rain. If you want to come out for an "atmospheric" hike and learn a little bit about the history, I'll see you there! Dress extra warm in layers! We'll repeat on a clear night sometime.

    I've opened up a few more spots. I am not canceling if there are overcast skies, light fog and/or drizzle. Rain isn't supposed to set in until midnight. Don't feel obligated to attend if you feel the weather is not for you. That's why I opened up some spots. Dress appropriately. Dinner may have to wait if the weather does not cooperate enough to be comfortable.

    June 22, 2013

  • Christopher Y.

    Thank you for all of your help, Franny... Unfortunately, I got word Friday that Monday I have a very early meeting for East Coast reps. :(

    Looking forward to an interesting and beautiful Sunday evening on the 23rd. Please update your RSVP to "No" if you can not attend to allow wait-listed people an opportunity to join.

    No-shows are noted and may jeopardize your ability to attend future events.

    Remember waitlist is on manual. First come first serve. If you get an email, go to this event and click Yes.

    Thanks and see you then--hopefully a clear night. Heavy fog/rain will cancel. Check here for updates and look outside!

    Thanks,

      Hi Franny,

  • Randi

    Hey, I just saw the opening and would like to take it.
    Can you confirm?
    Thanks!

    June 19, 2013

  • Taha

    Is anyone carpooling from San Jose ?

    June 19, 2013

  • Wen

    Strenuous hike? I'll give my spot to someone else

    June 18, 2013

  • Sach

    since i might carry some camera equipment as well, i am changing my RSVP to no. I will probably do this on my own. Thanks for the update on the hike's intensity.

    June 17, 2013

  • Sissy

    I can still car-pool the people I have promised to carpool on time for the strenuous hike but I thought of giving my spot to someone that also wants to take advantage of the exercise. If anyone wants to join me on a less cardio requiring hike for some pics pls let me know. Thank you Franny for the update. Next time I will join the strenuous one :D

    June 17, 2013

    • Rene

      How would you define strenuous? Do you happen to know the elevation gain per number of miles? And what pace do you expect from the group?

      June 17, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Rene, "strenuous" is a relative term depending on your physical conditioning. I don't have the data. Some people tend to overestimate their abilities so I err on the side of caution. I want people to self-select given the general idea of difficulty. Doing the flat self-guided tour is an option. However, due to the winding streets, I don't want early bailout for everyone's safety.

      June 17, 2013

  • Sissy

    Since the hike will be strenuous but I was planning on carrying some camera equipment and the two worlds cant go together I need to drop out..instead though I am going to come and take an easier way less strenuous to make some pics.

    June 17, 2013

  • Rene

    Anyone interested in carpooling from Alameda/oakland?

    June 14, 2013

    • Rene

      Whereabouts in Alameda? I'm on the west end by fosters freeze (Webster street).

      June 14, 2013

    • Nikki

      YES, I'm interested. I'm in Oakland but can easily get to Alameda. You can contact me through my group profile. Thanks.

      June 14, 2013

  • Sissy

    I live in Emeryville..I have 4 spaces in my car..if someone wants to carpool..I can pick up from MacArthur Bart station, as well. ;D
