Stinson Beach to Steep Ravine Trail

Directions/meeting point:(the meetup.com directions linked above are not always reliable, use these details to find the start of the hike) the meeting point will in the Stinson Beach parking lot, next to the gate leading to Marine Way.   I will be driving my Silver Subaru Impreza WRX, license plate ending in 468.   I'll be wearing this black Sanzaru Games hoodie (if it's not too hot). I'll send out my cell to RSVPs (but as always there is no guarantee of reception).

This week's hike is on Mount Tam.  We'll start at Stinson Beach and take Dipsea and Steep Ravine trails up to Panoll Ranger Station.  We'll then take Matt Davis to West Point Inn, and return to Stinson beach via Old Stage and Matt Davis trails.   It will be around 10 miles with around 1800 feet elevation gain to the highest point.   A partial GPS recording is here.

Dress in layers, bring lots of water and snacks.  Hopefully the weather will be good, but be prepared for rain and mud. Also be sure to avoid Poison Oak, which can be found on most bay area trails.  We should be back well before sunset, but bring a flashlight just in case. This is a state park, so no dogs are allowed.

Carpooling recommended, as there is not a ton of parking at the trailhead.  I will be travelling from the NOPA district of San Francisco and will have two spaces (email me via meetup if you are interested).

As with all my hikes everyone signs up at their own risk, and you assume all liability associated with the hike and carpooling to it (by RSVPing you agree to our conditions of membership).

If anyone fancies a post-hike beer and a snack, we'll be heading over to the Sand Dollar restaurant after the hike.
