Event Notes:

We will meet at the beach parking lot by 11:00, and hike from the beach up to Muir Woods and take a lunch break. (This hike up took me 2 and a half hours the last time I hiked it.) We'll then head down the mountain back to the beach. The total distance is 10 miles, and is a great workout!

Trail Notes:

This is a steep hike, but very pretty in spots among the Redwoods. It is also typically cooler in temperature being shaded among all the trees- a perfect hiking solution for our hot summer days in the Bay Area! :0)

Trailhead Directions:

Take 580 West Exit at Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Take 101 South Take Stinson Beach Exit Follow the signs to Stinson Beach and meet at the lower beach parking lot. We will walk to the trailhead which is located nearby.
