Bolinas Ridge - One Way Hike


Distance: 11 mi

Elevation Gain: 2000 ft

Duration: 6 hrs

BART Coverage: 11 mi

Difficulty: Strenuous


This hike is similar to Tom's hike on Jan 2011.  It will cover the entire BART trail from Samuel P Taylor State Park to Bolinas Fairfax Rd and RidgeCrest Blvd junction.  We should get good views of Kent Lake and Tomales Bay.

This is a one way hike and will require shuttling hikers, so please read the instructions on how to meet up.  Due to the limited parking at the meetup location, the number of hikers will be limited.

If you are interested, please RSVP and indicate if you are willing to drive and where you are coming from.  Hikers will initially be placed on the waiting list until I can figure out the right mix of drivers and car poolers.

Meeting Point

We will meet at the junction of Bolinas Fairfax Rd and RidgeCrest Blvd.  From there we need drivers to shuttle hikers to the trail head and park at the Samuel P Taylor State Park.  I will provide driving instructions to get to the trail head.  From the trail head we will hike southwards to the meeting point.  At the end I will need some volunteers to drive to the trail head to pick up the cars parked there.  I'm hoping that it won't be as complicated as it sounds.

    It was a good hike with a small group including some nice new hikers. The Iron Springs Pub & Brewery is always a good place to relax after the hike. Thank you, Edmond!

    I can't do this one, but a word to the wise--it takes a bit longer to drive to the starting point than you might imagine--it's a very curvy road! Beautiful drive too, and a great hike!

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.
