There is an $8 parking fee to enter the park. Meet at the bridge that crosses Lagunitas (Peppermill) Creek. Go to the restrooms before heading to the bridge. The hike will cross over to the north of Sir Francis Drake Rd, go up Barnabe Peak and visit Stairways Falls. Hopefully the flow will be high with the recent rains.
It is unlikely that the hike will be cancelled unless there is heavy rain. Check on day of hike. Bring rain gear, boots and hiking poles and be prepared for mud.
