Angel Island Day Hike

Let's hike around Angel Island State Park. We’ll take the 10AM ferry from Tiburon to Angel Island and visit the immigration station; the “Ellis Island of the West”, at China Cove. We’ll hike to the top of the island at Mount Livermore (Elev. 781 feet) for a wonderful 360 Degree view and pass by the old Nike missile site.

Weather can be changeable so bring layers and sun protection. Rain Cancels. You will need to bring $ for parking in Tiburon and the ferry and gas reimbursement if you ride. No dogs please.

Round trip ferry and park admission is $13.50 and it will help if you have exact change for this.

Optional early dinner in Tiburon before we head home.

    Absolutely fantastic! I really enjoyed everything about the day - from accidentally finding the group in the ferry line, to hiking around the park with a great conversationalist, to the Chinese restaurant and then the margarita at the last place... and then we "pulled chocks".

      I do plan on staying for dinner. Sorry for the late notice.

      May 4, 2013

    • Kim S

      That's ok. I figured it was a "no" since I didn't hear from you so I just cancelled. I needed to be back by 6:00 and I could see that wasn't going to happen! :)

      May 4, 2013

  • Karen

    I'm here on the ferry haven't find you guys yet I'm in a bright orange shirt hope I find you it's a beautiful day to hike!

    May 4, 2013

  • Tim

    I plan on meeting everyone at the ferry at 10am since I am already in Marin. Does anyone know where to park?

    May 4, 2013

  • Kim S

    I think I won't be home in time for my evening commitment, so am going to make other plans for the day.

    May 3, 2013

  • Florrie

    Jeff and I will meet you all at Tiburon ferry terminal at 10.

  • Victoria

    Sorry, I decided to do a hike in Coloma or Placerville for I have been to Angel island before :). Great hike and history!!

    May 3, 2013

  • Richard C

    The weather forecast for Saturday is sunny with a high of 79 degrees, so it should be perfect weather for hiking on Angel Island.

    May 3, 2013

  • Richard C

    It will help speed up the process of boarding the ferry if everyone brings exact change. The round trip ferry trip and state park admission is $13.50.

  • Ewelina

    Sorry, next time. This weekend I am going to Vallejo Yacht Race. Greets!!!

    Bruce, I would also like to carpool with you. I can meet you at Sunsplash at 7:15am -- Thanks, Rich

  • Varya M

    Bruce, I would like to share a ride. Can I meet you at the Sunsplash Park & Ride in Roseville at 7 -7.15 am or any other place that is convenient for you?

    May 2, 2013

  • Bruce P.

    If anyone would like to share a ride from the Rocklin area please let me know.

    May 2, 2013

  • Richard C

    I consider this hike "moderate" difficulty. We'll walk about 8 miles and gain about 1000 feet over all. There will be plenty of stops to enjoy the scenery and take pictures. Do bring a lunch and plenty of water.

    May 1, 2013

  • Lori/Lorraine

    I'm assuming we need to bring water and lunch with us. How difficult is the hike--so I know how much water to bring.

    May 1, 2013

  • Richard C

    Kira, Yes, you can meet us at the ferry terminal before the ferry leaves at 10:00 AM. I expect we'll get the 4:20PM ferry back to Tiburon which will get us back about 4:30. Some of the group may stay in Tiburon for an early dinner.

    Look for a group of people with day packs and hiking shoes and that should be us,

  • Kira

    Hi, I'm looking forward to the day! Two questions: 1.) Can I meet up with everyone in Tiburon (and if so, how will I recognize you? Ack!), and 2.) What's a rough ETA for our return to Tiburon? Thanks!

    April 30, 2013

  • Varya M

    April 29, 2013

  • Aleta K.

    I would so like to come but I must put in the time to finish my garden, any chance you will do this again perhaps late in the summer or early in the fall.

    April 29, 2013

  • Kimberly

    I'm going on a different hike. I would otherwise come on this one.
