    Anyone interested in doing a 14 mile option can join me on Sunday. Leaving 11th & P at 7AM (Yep, the early bird option). Hope to meet up with the rest of the group at Arch Rock.

    I will already be in the Bay Area. What time should I meet at trail head? Thanks

    February 11, 2013

    • Shannon B 👣

      Hi Steve, I don't think we'll be there before 10:15am.

      February 11, 2013

    • Gina

      I'm doing the same (as I live here) and bringing a friend (who has RSVP'd). We will aim for 10:15 then.

      February 13, 2013

  • Rick S.

    Hey Shannon - Is this right? Meet at 9 AM in downtown Sac? Seems late given that days are still pretty short. Or do you mean to meet at Point Reyes at 9 AM?

    February 11, 2013

    • Chico O ✌

      I would have preferred 9 a.m. at the P&R because the sunset and the dark doesn't kill you, plus Monday is a holiday for most. Because this is a beautiful place and the weather looks good, I am willing to roll into 11th & P at 8.

    • Cici T.

      Chico like your style

    :-) So excited to be back hiking with you all ... and I'm introducing a friend to you, who has joined up and is carpooling. Yay!!!

    February 12, 2013

  • Claudia

    I will do this hike on Sunday, stay at Point Reyes and do the Fort Funston hike on Monday. Anybody interested in joining me?
    Otherwise, I can offer a ride from 11th & P to Point Reyes.

    February 11, 2013

    • Chico O ✌

      That's a great idea. Thinking about it. Where will you stay?
