Day on Angel Island: Hike, BBQ/Picnic, Party - Serious Fun!!!

  • May 11, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Meet on the dock at the ferry entry












PLEASE NOTE:  Either meet at the Tiburon ferry at 9:45 or on the island at the picnic area to the right of the dock, past the open field w/ the museum.  The hike starts approx 10:45



The Plan:

Since this is the Spring edition we'll hike 2.5 miles to the top of Mt Livermore for a 360* view of the Bay Area (approx a 775' gain), then come down via the trail on the backside of the island for a total of about 5.5 miles.  Not a rough hike by any means, and of course the rating is contingent upon your condition.



What to bring:

Vino (and cups)

Snacks and vino for the hike.

Your appetite!

A cooler w/ ice and plenty of food

Food to BBQ (bring a small gas stove)

Sandwiches, salads, deserts, the works!  As always I'm hoping for plenty of ethnic food.  Not just boring hamburgers and hot dogs!  We're talking variety here, and lots of spicy food!

Plenty of Vino - we had some really nice bottles last time

Beer, water, soda, whatever you want to whet your whistle

Chips, dips, snacks, and plenty to share

Whoever brought the paella last time, pls bring it again - I loved it!

Layered clothing, sunscreen & hat

Hiking boots, or decent hiking shoes - even tennies will do for this one

$5 admin fee - thx!


Your sense of humour and desire for fun is an absolute must!



The hike is optional, so if you want to come chill while we hike and then eat, drink, and be merry w/ the rest of us after the hike - do it!   It would be nice to have a few people stay w/ the coolers/food while we hike.



Directions to ferry:

From US 101 heading Northbound Take the Tiburon Blvd exit, turn right, and follow Tiburon Blvd 4 miles into downtown Tiburon. Turn right on Main St. The ferry is located on the left at 21 Main St.


From US 101 heading Southbound Same exit as above, except take a left over the overpass. Instructions from overpass are the same as above.

Map and Parking Information: Park at any of the banks which will be closed and walk a few blocks to the ferry terminal.

Map and Parking Information


The ferry costs $13.50 (Round trip).  NO CREDIT CARDS  - Bring cash.

Meet at the ferry dock at 9:45am - Ferry leaves at 10:00am sharp - they won't wait.

GPS   [masked],[masked]



Return ferry runs 20 past ea hour. I.E. leaves island at 3:20pm, 4:20pm, last ferry is at 5:20pm.

Typically several of us ride the last ferry then go to Guaymas for drinks, chips & salsa, snacks, etc.  It's a great way to end the day.


This is no small event - it's posted to several Meetup sites and is the largest event I host ea year.

    Thank you, William, for a great day on the water. It was my first SF Bay sailing experience and it was a perfect day for it.

    Have you selected the crew? Is it safe to assume that since I'm still on the wait list I'm not sailing?
