The Place

Mt Tamalpais
State Park
February 9, 2013

Granite Point

Mount Tamalpais State Park rises majestically from the heart of Marin County. It captures our attention with its sweeping hillsides, cloaked with chaparrel-covered ridges, grasslands and oak woodlands. Deep canyons filled with solemn redwood groves intersect these ridges it is a popular hiking, picnicking, mountain and road cycling, horseback riding, and hang-gliding destination for residents of the San Francisco Bay Area, with over 100 miles (160 km) of trails and fire roads. The Steep Ravine Trail has been describes as "enchanting" with small water falls and beautiful redwoods along the way. The Dipsea Race which takes place on the 7 mile Dipsea Trail from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach since 1905 is the oldest cross-country trail running event - and the second oldest foot race of any kind in the United States.

Beach

Walking the Walk

We will take the Matt Davis trail up the slopes of Mt Tamalpais, leaving the misty and forested shore and ascending into a grassy area (where we will have our meeting) with views of the Pacific before a trail junction at the Pantoll Ranger Station. At the Ranger Station, we will descend on the Steep Ravine trail along a creek and redwoods before coming across the historic Dipsea trail which will take us back to our starting point.
