Pt. Pinole (Sunday Hike)
Pt. Pinole Regional Shoreline Primarily an on-leash trail, with the undeveloped areas being listed as off-leash (based off "Parking fee of $5 charged when entrance kiosk is staffed. $2 dog fee." The hike is in the Richmond area. If the Kiosk is unattended/closed (generally its only open during summer), then the parking is free. This hike is partially off-leash and partially on-leash. If you get lost or come late to the park, my cell is[masked]. We will gather behind the ranger station where the park map is located. Notes from last hike here: 1) Though it is great to support the EB Parks, if money is an issue, there is free parking at the detention facility next to the park. This is acceptable by the county and the park. 2) Dogs can be leash free for most of the hike; the only time they are required to be on leash is on the paved/concrete areas, which is from the parking lot to the trails. The dirt trails around the 3.5 mile perimeter are off leash.

    What we're about

    Weekend hiking with the canine companion(s) and socializing with other hikers in the community. One doesn't have to be a dog owner to be a member; just someone who likes hanging around dogs and the outdoors. A lot of the hike I post can be found online at, but other suggestions are welcome and encouraged.

    In honor of our Corgi, Zinfandel, most hikes I post will be low-key and fall within beginner-to-intermediate levels. The majority of the hikes will fall between one to two hours. Feel free to hike longer/shorter if you want, and to set your own hiking pace.

    This is a FREE Meetup group, and I have no intention to ever charge a membership fee. Hikes will generally start at 9 or 10 am because I prefer to exercise in the morning. I will try to balance the majority of the hikes between Marin and Sonoma County, with the occasional trip out to the East Bay Regional Parks.

    Hope to see you on the trails!
