STEEP RAVINE HIKE

  • Stinson Beach

Steep Ravine Hike-

CARPOOL LINK 

The Meetup Spot: (Trailhead) Meet at Trailhead at 9am.

Carpool Fee from SAC is $25. We will meet at Stinson Beach Community Center.  Stinson Beach is on the backside of Mt. Tamalpais; this is a winding road with cyclists.  Please allow plenty of time for driving.  Park on the left-hand side of the road.  We will gather at the trail head, just a few feet north of the Community Center.

The Hike Plan: 

We will hike this gorgeous7 mile loop hike (4 hours), beginning and ending at Stinson Beach. The hike features a bit of everything:  waterfalls, lush forests, grasslands, canyons, and views galore.  We will have a mid-hike break for snacking at the Pantoll Ranger Station.  On a scale of easy to strenuous, this hike is moderate. 

What should I bring? 

Good hiking boots/shoes; hat; sunscreen; backpack, at least 1 liter of water and camera too, if you’re a photog.  DRESS IN LAYERS and wear long pants!  Weather can be unpredictable, so have layers that you can shed.  Food to eat; there is no food for purchase along the way.  Consider…dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, wraps, meats/cheeses, sliced sandwiches, salads, cheese/crackers, - be creative!

Tips for an enjoyable hike:  

• Carry more water than you than you think you’ll drink – 2 liters is best. 

• Fill your water bottles half way night prior, then top off in the am. 

• Bring a paper or plastic bag for your trash. Pack it in-pack it out.  We don’t leave trash on the trail. 

• Bring some cash for a possible post-hike lunch.   

• Bring post hiking shoes.  Your feet will thank you.
