China Camp State Park - Marin County

This continues a journey to state parks about the bay area.

(FYI This park is slated for closure in July).

 

Please arrive at 9:45AM to start at 10AM.

We will park at a day use parking lot (adjacent to the campground parking lot).  This is located off North San Pedro Road (off campground entrance driveway).  If parking is not available here, you are okay to park along North San Pedro Road before the entry (per the Park Ranger).

I am planning for a 8-10 mile.  This hike appears to be a moderate hike; maybe 1,000 feet elevation gain.  The plan for the hike route is as follows: Bay View Trail - Back Ranch Fire Trail - Ridge Fire Trail - Miwok Fire Trail - Oak Ridge Trail - Shoreline Trail.  If there is interest (I believe there will be) we can veer to a look out point/cove (or two).

 

This likely will take 3-4 hours.

 

We can plan to visit a local restaurant for food/drink as a after hike event (this is optional).

    We took the steep side of the climb first, an immediate 500 ft. elevation gain. Moderately strenuous.

    Thank you Tom! It was a wonderful day. And that Brazilian organic (or was it orgasmic...I'm still confused) restaurant was a great choice.

    Sonal - I just read your message. It's probably too late to coordinate a ride with you by now. Thanks for the offer.

    My car was stolen a couple of weeks ago. Is there any chance I could catch a ride from someone anywhere near the Mission in San Francisco?

    Any more details on where to park? There seems to be some roadside parking near the entrance to the campgrounds, or do we use the campgrounds parking?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
