Cheese tasting at the Cheesefactory then bike or hike Samuel P. Taylor SP

We'll have a cheese tasting and then a picnic by the pond. You can bring your food or buy sandwiches, chips, cheese at the Cheesefactory.

The place is very nice and so will be the weather!

Then we'll drive to Samuel P Taylor State Park (20 min driving) where I will lead a hike.

 

Mt Barnabee hike is a moderate 6.0 miles hike, 1300 feet elevation gain. Expect 3 hours of hiking.

Description from bay area hikers:

This 6 mile semi-loop hike takes you along a creek, and through deep woods, grassy hillsides, and chaparral on fire roads to Mount Barnabe. The summit features outstanding views, particularly of the adjacent open space lands to the south, east, and west. Then you descend to Devil's Gulch on a gently-graded forested path, and finish the hike on a roller-coaster trail through grassland, tanoak and Douglas fir, and chaparral.


High points:
Barnabe Mountain is one of the best viewpoints in Marin County. Bill's Trail is a charming and carefully engineered path that makes the 1000 foot descent a pleasure. Although this is a long and tough hike, there are a few opportunities to shorten it by choosing alternate trails.

Low points:
Some parts of the Riding and Hiking Trail are rutted, muddy, and ramble up and down in a manner best suited to equestrians (or goats).

 

Make sure to bring enough water, dress in layers and bring some snacks.
