***Although slower hikers welcome, please assess whether you can complete hike---Furthermore, those who need to finish quickly should make sure they carpool with like-minded hikers.
Hopefully, spring flowers are popping on this pretty loop hike. We'll start from Stinson Beach and climb 1500 feet, starting on the Dipsea Trail and continuing on the Steep Ravine trail (keeping cool under the redwood canopy). At the top, we can relax and eat at Pan Toll Station (picnic tables, restrooms and potable water), then descend the Matt Davis Trail back to the beach.
Following the hike, those who wish can hang out on the sandy beach, or take off for refreshments. Open to ideas.
***Plan on carpooling up and departing 11th & P by 8:30 latest***
