Day On Angel Island: Hike, Potluck/Picnic/Party­ = Serious Fun

  • May 11, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Either meet at the Tiburon ferry at 9:45 or on the island at the picnic area to the right of the dock, past the open field w/ the museum.  The hike starts approx 10:45

 

 

The Plan:

Since this is the Spring edition we'll hike 2.5 miles to the top of Mt Livermore for a 360* view of the Bay Area (approx a 775' gain), then come down via the trail on the backside of the island for a total of about 5.5 miles.  Not a rough hike by any means, and of course the rating is contingent upon your condition.

 

 

What to bring:

Vino (and cups)

Snacks and vino for the hike.

Your appetite!

A cooler w/ ice and plenty of food

Food to BBQ (bring a small gas stove if planning to cook)

Sandwiches, salads, deserts, the works!  As always I'm hoping for plenty of ethnic food.  Not just boring hamburgers and hot dogs!  We're talking variety here, and lots of spicy food!

Plenty of Vino - we had some really nice bottles last time

Beer, tea, juice, water, whatever you want to whet your whistle

Chips, dips, snacks, and plenty to share

Whoever brought the paella last time, pls bring it again - I loved it!

Layered clothing, sunscreen & hat

Hiking boots, or decent hiking shoes - even tennies will do for this one

$5 activity fee

 

Your sense of humour and desire for fun is an absolute must!

 

 

The hike is optional, so if you want to come chill while we hike and then eat, drink, and be merry w/ the rest of us after the hike - do it!   It would be nice to have a few people stay w/ the coolers/food while we hike.

 

 

Directions to ferry:

From US 101 heading Northbound Take the Tiburon Blvd exit, turn right, and follow Tiburon Blvd 4 miles into downtown Tiburon. Turn right on Main St. The ferry is located on the left at 21 Main St.

Return ferry runs 20 past ea hour. I.E. leaves island at 3:20pm, 4:20pm, last ferry is at 5:20pm.

Typically several of us ride the last ferry then go to Guaymas for drinks, chips & salsa, snacks, etc.  It's a great way to end the day.

 

This event is posted on several Meetup sites and already has a ton of people coming, so it's a good opportunity to make new friends.

    Jehana & Nomi, if you guys can make it to the Daly City Bart station by 9:00am sharp, you are welcome to ride with me (in my car). I live near the station and plan to take 19th Ave to the Golden Gate Bridge, to Tiburon. Let me know and we can talk about a location at the Bart station. [masked]
