Details: We will climb to the top of YBI for some amazing and historical views. See the new and old eastern spans of the Bay Bridge side by side, the western span of the bridge and visit the old plane Signal Tower turned Officer's Club, now deteriorating, condemned and eerie. We will then go down a "secret path and staircase" to the Clipper Cove Beach and return by another staircase to TI. Finally, we'll stroll down Avenue of the Palms and visit Bliss Dance, a titan of a woman steel structure built for the 2010 Burning Man event. We'll finish with snacks and drinks as the city begins to light up.

We will "meet up" with the SF City Steps group after the hike for snacks.
Meet: 6:30, depart 6:45 pm sharp
Walk: Approximately 1.5 hours, 3.5 miles, short but intense uphill stairs and paths on YBI and flat on TI.
Bring: Warm clothes, water, snacks and drink to share if you like, and a sense of adventure!
Transportation: Bus 108 from SF. There is no bus from Oakland. Easy parking near meeting point.
Waitlist Info: We now have a manual waitlist. This means that when a spot opens up, everyone on the waiting list will receive an email. In order to claim the spot, you must visit this meetup event and RSVP "Yes". So watch your email closely. This approach avoids unintentional no-shows and ensures that the people who move up to "attending" are indeed available and interested. Thus, please update your RSVP to "No" if you can not attend. No-showing is noted and may jeopardize your ability to attend future events. Thanks!
