Hike at Samuel Taylor State Park [Barnabe Peak]

  • Feb 26, 2012 · 11:30 AM

Hi everyone,
This will be about 8 mile moderate+ hike at this beautiful place. The Barnabe peak has one of the best views in marin.

Hike highlights: redwoods forests, creek, views and fun people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bring water, lunch and something to share if you like [remember, tastier snacks get you more friends wink]
We'll have lunch at an overlook just after coming to an opening on top of Bills trail. This is one of my favorite lunch spots :)

Meet at the Park ranger station at 11:30AM. There is a $8 entrance fee I think.
Or you can park outside and walk in if you don't want to pay.

Directions:

  • From SF, cross the golden gate bridge and keep on 101 North.
  • Near San Rafael, take the exit for 'san anselmo' which curves left and takes you to Sir Francis Drake blvd.
  • Keep on Sir Francis Drake blvd for about 15 miles until you see the sign to the entrance of 'Samuel P Taylor State Park' [camping,picknicking sign][on the left after the town of Lagunitas].
  • You can pay the fee [$8 I think] and park inside the park or park on the roadside parking and walk.
  • We'll meet near the restrooms on the left a bit further down the road from the ranger station [just before the bridge].

Approximate GPS coordinates for the park turn off: N[masked] W[masked]

From eastbay, take 580 bridge and take 'Sir Francis Drake blvd' exit and follow the directions above.

TRAIL MAP

Dogs are not allowed on the trails :(

Note: Please wait at the intersections if you are not sure which way to go.

As usual, after the hike, we can go somewhere for food and drinks :)

See u soon! :)

Disclaimer: Its your own responsibility to look after yourself on the hike if u decide to join us. You assume all the risks including sharing my food ;)

    Hi, I'd be interested in an Eastbay carpool. I live on Oakland by Lake Merritt. Definitely open to drive.
