Camp Meeker Walk & Potluck

Hike: Walk along the fire trails for an hour (30 minutes out and back) and discover the hiking possibilities and hidden trails you can return to again. This is the perfect summer walk because most of it will be under shady redwoods along a cool creek.

Time: 10:00am Dogs on leash welcome. Please plan 35 minutes to travel west from Santa Rosa, or 43 minutes from Petaluma out Pepper road to Valley Ford to Occidental and into Camp Meeker.

Duration: 1 - 1.5 hours

Potluck location: Behind the post office on the picnic tables along side Dutch Bill Creek

Potluck Time: After we return from the walk. You can relax at the tables and meet for the potluck. The walk may take up to 1.5 hours.

Meet at 10:00am at the POST OFFICE near the Hall and we go over the trail details, and gather. Hike at 10:30am beginning from the Post office. Potluck at the picnic tables behind the post office. (Camp Meeker is 35 minutes west of Santa Rosa).

Please park at and around the post office, carpool, or park on the bridge parking slots. We will meet/gather at the post office, and potluck behind the post office beside Dutch Bill creek.

Walking sticks welcome on this trail.

Are you vegan, vegetarian, raw foodie, or just curious about it all? All are welcome, you don't need to be vegan at all to attend.

Come enjoy a local delicious potluck meal.

The walk will be followed by a vegan potluck - Please bring your own serving and eating utensils, plate, cup, bowl and napkin.

It is welcomed, but not a requirement, to bring a potluck dish that serves 5 people. Please also include an ingredient list with your potluck dish - vegans cannot eat meat, eggs, dairy or honey. Paper and pen will be provided if you forget to do this beforehand.

We request that potluck items be free from all animal products including dairy and eggs (check your ingredient list for hidden animal products like casein, whey, gelatin, meat or fish broths, honey, etc.). On these walk & potlucks it's easier to store raw vegan food in the car than it is to bring cooked.

When meeting up with the group, avoid bringing pets unless it's designated a dog walk - some parks have restrictions. If I know ahead of time I will post that dogs can be brought on leash - otherwise it's not allowed.

Avoid perfume and other fragrances, just in case.

This is a county maintained fire road. Dogs on 6 ft or shorter leash are welcome.

    I'd love to join this one, but am working that day. Is there a link somewhere with trail maps in the area? I googled but didn't find anything . I'd love to go hiking there some other time.

      If you find a trail map it may be through Landpaths

    It was great being with all of you on this "tour" and having lunch in such a beautiful spot. Thanks for being a good guide, Ivy.

    I like the way our meetups are moving out into the back country! I lived in Meeker ("Damp Bleaker") years ago and had a house there so looking forward to more outside activities this summer. Ivy, is the swimming pond still happenign?

      In all the time I lived in Meeker, I never went to the pond. We were in a drought then too. Who keeps the fire roads clear in case of fire and removes the incendiary tan oaks, Ivy? And who owns St Dot's now that there's enough money to buy another 100 acres?!

      I wish I knew

    Dang! I wanted to do this, but am scheduled to work! Next time.

    I already have a commitment this Saturday, but hope to make the next one. My Golden would love it too!
