Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, 15ish miles

Meet at Muir Woods for a 9:00 DEPARTURE for a brisk paced, 15ish mile hike

Meet just inside the main entrance by the visitors' center.  Entry is free before 9:00.

Tentative Route: Muir Woods, Bootjack, Rock Spring, Laurel Dell, Willow Camp, Stinson Beach, Steep Ravine, Pan Toll.

As always, all are welcome, but please be prepared for the pace, distance, and climbing.

Standard fine print on my fast paced hikes: We stop for lunch, and take another break or two. We regroup at trail junctions, but take few rest stops. If you like to take frequent breaks, or if you need to stop and rest on climbs, these hikes aren't for you. On the other hand, if you like hiking lots of hilly miles at a brisk pace, while taking in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, please join us. If you aren’t sure you can keep up, but want to try it, please email me to discuss. If you do come, out of courtesy to the rest of the group, please bring a map, and volunteer to take a short cut if you find are struggling to keep up.

      My guess is that we'll get back around 3:30. It all depends on the group.

      Shouldn't be at problem at that time.
      The upper lot usually fills up around 8:45, but there lower lot will have lots of spaces.

    I'm signed up for volunteer trail maintenance in Muir Woods Saturday with some folks from work. So I might see you there, but I can't do the hike this week.
