This will be about a 4 mile hike and is pretty flat. Oh and very pretty, so I guess that makes the rating Pretty (for good views) Easy (for level hiking). Obviously the rating depends on your condition. For me, I expect this will be difficult ;-)
At the end of the hike we'll have a big potluck/bonfire, party! If you had fun at Sugarloaf or this one last month, then you know what to expect!
An online 5 Star review had this to say... "Great place to: ride your bike, run, site see, critter watch, take in the natural beauty, make out!, reflect, skip rocks and get away from it all."
So does that sound interesting? This is a mellow hike that takes in some nice scenery and views of The Bay.
It's the end of the work wk, so let's get away, enjoy some nice company, sip some vino, have some laughs, and party!
These people look bored. Therefore this is not our grp.
Our grp doesn't do things that are boring. I personally make sure of that!
Some of what we'll see on this hike...
There are no wineries in the park, sooooo bring those bottles!
We'll have a big potluck at the picnic area in the meadow at the end of the hike, where there will be a bonfire!
What To Bring:
Vino! (and cups)
Hiking Boots/shoes (you can do this one in tennies)
Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent(?)
1-2 liters of cold water (1/2 fill and refrigerate, then top w/ ice in the a.m.)
Food (no, not just a personal sandwich) food to share (sliced sandwiches, salad, cheese/crackers (I love sharp cheddar) dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, deserts - be creative.) This is a potluck, isn't it? Sharing the meal is part of connecting w/ everyone.
Drinks, drinks, drinks! Vino, beer, tea, juice - whatever whets your whistle.
If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect - so be prepared for fun!
$5 activity fee
Your sense of humour is an absolute must!
From Highway 101 in San Rafael, exit at N. San Pedro Road and follow to China Camp.
Plan on parking outside the park, on the side of the road by the park entry.
We will be joined by folks from other grps, so make some new friends!
