The Beauty of Angel Island

  • Jul 20, 2013 · 7:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Alan (916)[masked]

Angel Island is a hilly, grass and forest-covered island, the largest in San Francisco Bay. It is located one mile from the Tiburon Peninsula and covers about 760 acres. It provides spectacular views of Marin and San Francisco Counties.

We will hike a little over 7 miles total on easy to moderate well-maintained trails around the perimeter and have lunch at the top of Mt. Livermore to enjoy the beautiful surrounding scenery. We'll also journey through some points of interest like the Immigration Station (the Ellis Island of the West), Fort Mcdowell, and the Nike Missile site.

After carpool arrangements are made, we'll leave shortly thereafter and make the drive to Tiburon where we'll board the 10:00 ferry. Round trip fare and admission is $13.50. Bring lunch, lots of water, snacks, and $4.00 per hr. to your driver. Wear layers due to changeable weather conditions and lastly, don't forget your warm, friendly attitude.

After the hike, we'll have an optional eats/brew at Marin County Brewery.

Directions: I-80 W to CA-37 to 101 S towards San Rafael/San Francisco. Exit at Tiburon Blvd./E. Blithedale then turn left on CA-131 and continue onto Paradise Dr. Find parking, preferably at the large supermarket on right side of the street. We'll then meet by the large fountain in front of the coffee shop prior to boarding the ferry. No dogs, please. Rain cancels.

Your $1 donation will help pay for our club's annual dues.

    I was very beautiful. I will definetly go again, there is so much to see and trails to hike. I didn't get to see the other side of the island so I have to see that. I actually got to see a deer climbing Mt. Livermore! The view from the top was absolutely beautiful. Angel's Island is a place that must be visited again and again.

    Good to go to the Chinese Immigration Station exhibit--very inspirational. Nice to be able to climb in a different weather condition out here. Good to learn about other parts of the country. Good to see other faces. Hope to see them again.

    Answers:
    *All carpoolers will get a ride.
    *The $4 per hr fee is what you pay your driver. No part of it will go towards the ferry. Our group is not for profit so we can't afford to pay any of your costs. The $1 we collect goes to our site's annual dues.
    *Parking is about $5 at the supermarket.
    *ETA there is about 9:30 am..ferry back is either 2 or 3 pm.
    *Hiking boots are not required and tennis or running shoes are fine. *This is not a difficult hike and we'll stop at various points of interest. *We'll hike as one group and keep a reasonable pace.
    *All other questions will be entertained at the meet-up. Please don't be late as we'll depart right after carpool arrangements are made.
