Hike # 13_2009 - Bolinas Ridge ~ 10 Miles

I'm trying a Sunday hike this time and also a one-way car shuttle back type of hike. The Hike: This is an intermediate hike mainly because of climb #2 that is 1000ft in 1.5 miles. We'll be taking the Olema Valley trail till we climb on the Randall trail up to the BART on the Bolinas Ridge Trail. We'll end at the the Bolinas-Fairfax Rd intersection from which drivers or perhaps all of us will shuttle back to the Five Brooks start point. http://files.meetup.c...

Parking: Everyone, please drive and park at the Fairfax-Bolinas Rd and Ridge Crest Blvd intersection. It's all curbside or side of road parking and so just drive around till you find a spot. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE BOLINAS FAIRFAX RD IS CLOSED EAST OF HERE but it is open down to HWY1. The directions from google map may not be that good. I suggest to take HWY1 from 101 and then take the Panaromic HWY to the right (look for sign towrds Muir Woods), stay on the Panaromic past Muir Wood and eventually turn right on Pan Toll Rd and then shortly up on top turn left unto the Ridge Crest Rd. The drive will be windy but very pretty.

We'll efficiently carpool from here to the the start of the hike at Five Brooks. ideally we would need ~1car per 2.5 people and so far we have 8 cars and so we are fine for the shuttling.

Meeting point: I'll be visible in the intersection area with my usual tan baseball cap and my dark blue honda crv. Call if you are running late or get lost at[masked]-1976.

Optional After hike event: How about the Farm House in Olema?

    Somehow we completed this hike before the downpour. Being serenaded by the Bolinas Swamp Frog Choir was a highlight!

    Great, wet, windy, cold, but great.

    Hugo: Last weekend on a different hike we had a similar kind of shuttle situation. We all parked at the ending point and then shuttled in a few cars to the starting point. It seemed to go well. There was also a cap on the number of hikers, which probably helped the shuttling.
