Enjoy a scenic, moderate but steady paced, 9.5 mile (2B) hike through shady woods to four beaches on Tomales Bay. Return to trailhead by c. 5pm (6pm if we swim). Hike is followed by an optional dinner or drink. This is a good hike for beginners in for a bit of a challenge.
Cancellation: Any rain cancels.
Bring: lunch, liquids, sturdy shoes, and layered clothing. We may take swimming break at beach depending on weather and tide, so swimsuit is an option (too public to be optional).
Meet: Shell beach parking lot.
