Hike at Mt. Tam [by Doug]

  • Feb 8, 2013 · 11:30 AM

ok, I am posting this on behalf of Doug [the wine guy]...so if you have any questions, you can contact him :)

we have a special dispensation for a weekday hike - Friday February 8th.

Hike description:
Meet at Rock Spring (where parking is free) at 11:30am

11 mile loop:  Benstein trail to Potrero Meadows, then down the road to  Music camp trail Music Camp is secluded there in the forest - "an eclectic spot of music ritual". Then over to High marsh trail (passing through Willow Meadow), down the Kent trail, and lunch on the shore of Alpine lake. Return via Helen Markt and Cataract trail for rushing water falls, streams and brooks, passing through Laurel Dell, back to Rock Spring.

Rumor has it that there will be chocolate and red wine on the hike.

Rock Spring is 1900', Alpine Lake 600'.
The good workout comes going up the Cataract trail (we'll take our time).

Bathrooms at Rock Spring and Laurel Dell.

    Hike is canceled. Apologies for short notice.
    This is a great hike, will do it sometime soon...while there is still lots of water on Cataract Falls.

    Very tempting Doug, but the bathroom remodel is going full bore so we can get back to parties at my house after Mt. Diablo.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
