Mt.Tam's Most Beautiful-Bootjack Creek-Down to the Edge of Muir Woods

This will be about a seven mile hike, down alongside one of the Park's most beautiful streams, Bootjack Creek, as it tumbles down into Muir Woods. 

Veteran hiker Ernie Castiaux will be leading the hike. Ernie has recently become a Mt.Tam State Park volunteer Hike Leader. Come out and welcome Ernie on his new volunteer journey.

Highlights will be the waterfall views from Bootjack Trail, high on the banks of Bootjack Creek, deep in the Redwoods.

Lunch stop will be at the Alice Eastwood Group Camp.

After lunch we'll hike up the Sierra Trail, with nice views of the Park's western valleys, to the west and north. Looping back on the Troop 80 Trail, back to where we started on the Bootjack Trail and the cars. 

Natural wonders will be the Fetid Adders Tongue, the earliest blooming wildflower in the Park. There may be thousands of Ladybugs wintering on the borderline of Muir Woods.

Rain will not cancel.

(Standard, generic details to follow.)

    Sounds like fun, do you know what kind of elevation we'll be hiking?

    January 16, 2014

    • Ernie C.

      Yvonne. Sierra Club Classification would be 2B if you are familiar with it. The total elevation change is about 1100 (up and down). Trail route is Bootjack, Alice Eastwood fire road, Plevin Cut, Sierra, Troop 80, Troop 80 spur, return to Bootjack and our cars. We start our downhill following Redwood Creek through the Redwoods. Lovely hike. And no mud ! ... Ernie

      Thank you. That is very helpful. I am familiar with the SC Classification, but as you know it is a broad range within the 2B. I appreciate the thorough answer.
