Sierra Singles Alamere Falls Hike

Come help us celebrate a Sierra Singles member's July birthday on this moderate paced 12 miles with rolling hills, hike to Alamere falls, which is one of the few water falls that flows onto a beach, by way of Wildcat Beach. We will have great views of the Pacific Ocean and Southern Point Reyes.

Bring: Water, (no water at trailhead), lunch and snacks to share (Birthday goodies gladly accepted!).

Meet: 10 am at the Palomarin trailhead in Bolinas.

Directions: From Hwy 101 in Marin take the Marin City/Hwy 1 exit to Stinson Beach, continue north on Hwy 1 to Bolinas, turn left onto Bolinas Rd. (no sign) and drive 2.5 miles to Mesa Rd. Turn right on Mesa Rd. and go about 6 miles to the Palomarin Trailhead. Alternate route: Take the Sir Francis Drake Blvd. from Hwy 101 and drive west about 20 miles to the town of Olema and turn left onto Hwy 1. Go about 9 miles south on Hwy 1 to Bolinas Rd. (which is usually not marked), turn right and go 2.5 miles to Mesa Rd. Turn right on Mesa Rd. and drive about 6 miles to the trailhead.

Cancellation: Any rain cancels.

Leader: Albert Chiu, (510)[masked], or [masked].

    Hi Albert or someone who knows the answer..
    In the directions to this spot, what does it mean that there is no sign for Bolinas Rd.? How do I know when to turn left onto Bolinas Rd? Thanks.

    July 10, 2013

    • RAY

      The Bolinas locals for years have taken down the multiple attempts of a sign indicatng how to get into town. If you have a GPS and put in Palomarin Trailhead - it should take you there. You can use google maps and find it that way and then get the number coordinates to enter into your GPS. I use to know the direction but now only know how to get there when I see the road. If you are going north on hwy 1 it is a left turn shortly after the Audubon canyon ranch. If you reach olema and Sir Francis Drake Rd- you gone too far north. Sorry maybe someone else has better directions Good luck and have a great hike!

      July 10, 2013

    • Denise

      Thanks Ray. I'll lookout for Audubon Canyon Ranch.

  • Albert C.

    I noticed that several of you have RSVPs for this hike and also Steve Bakaley's Central Point Reyes hike. Since you cannot do both hikes at the same time, please make up your mind whether you come on my hike or not because that are people waiting go come on my hike. I appreciate your considerations on this matter. Thanks.

    July 5, 2013

  • Kitty R.

    Since I'm on the wait list, I found another activity instead. Know you-all will have a great hike. Catch you another time and place!

  • Ian Z.

    Hmm, I'll have to choose between this and the Central PR hike the same day. Lots depends on a kind hiker offering a ride :-)

      I can give you a ride. I am coming from Alameda, so Fruitvale is an easy place to meet for me, but I could make it to other places.
