View To A Thrill - Baranby Peak, Samuel P. Taylor Park

  • Nov 23, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Distance: 10 miles

Elevation Gain: 1,600ft

Difficulty: Moderate/Strenuous

This is a serious hike, like Mt Tam, so please be prepared.  We'll start in the lower lush region of the park that has a beautiful canopy, then head for the higher regions to the top of Barnaby Peak.  Spectacular views up top and a perfect lunch spot.  On the way up there we might head over to a waterfall!

Plan on spending the entire day - in other words, no pub crawls that night.   This is an incredibly beautiful park, and believe me, we will rock!


What To Bring:

Vino! (and cups)

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent

2 liters of cold water (1/2 fill and refrigerate, then top w/ ice in the a.m.)

Vino/Snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike

Potluck Lunch ~ Food and more food -  (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, wraps, cut up sandwiches, meats, cheeses, crackers, deserts - be creative!)

Drinks, drinks, drinks!

If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect - so be prepared for fun!

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!
