(Bay Area Young Sierrans) Hike,Steep Ravine Hike Oriented to Ages 18-39

If you have ever hiked in Mt. Tamalpais, you have to hike the Steep Ravine Trail and the Dip Sea Trail. The trail begins at Pantoll Ranger Station, which is close to the top of Mt. Tam and descends 1,100 feet over the course of two miles down through a canyon, under a beautiful forest canopy, to Highway 1, near Rocky Point. The trail follows Webb Creek and crosses the stream eight times. At one point, you have to climb down a ladder adjacent to a small waterfall. Once you arrive near Rocky Point, there are spectacular views of Bolinas Lagoon, Stinson Beach, and the Martin Griffin Preserve.

6mi round trip. 1,200ft of elevation. 2B

Bring: Proper Hiking attire and footwear. About 3 canteens of water, if you have that much. Lunch.

Meet: Leader at North Berkeley BART station at 10:00am and will wait until 10:20am. Pantoll Ranger Station @ 11:30am.

I will give two options on how we can hike the loop trail at the trailhead talk.

Option 1 - Steep Ravine Trail (along the creek and under the tree canopy) to Highway 1 and Rocky Point (for tidepooling) and back up Steep Ravine Trail (along the creek) to the cars. Roughly - 6mi

Option 2 - Steep Ravine Trail (along the creek and under the tree canopy) to Highway 1 and Rocky Point (for tidepooling) and back up a small portion of Steep Ravine Trail (along a small section of the creek) to the Dipsea Trail (exposed and not under the canopy, chance for beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean), turn right at the Dipsea Trail and take it up to the Old Mine Trail. Turn left at the Old Mine Trail and back to the cars. Roughly - 6mi

We will walk down to the Beach. Rocky Point is one of the five major tide pool exploration spots in the Bay Area.

    Rui, if you can meet me at North Berkeley Bart at 10am, I can give you a ride. I have room for two more in my car. Let's split the gas and toll cost among all equally?

    Hey, I am bummed! I just noticed the age bracket, and I am too old, that is O L D. I so wanted to take that journey, among a group of nature lovers, and feel a part of a pack. Have fun!

    Oops - changing my RSVP to "No". I didn't realize that this was a Young Sierrans hike until I saw today's comment by the event host.
