Event: Yidventure & Jews’ Next Dor: Top o’ the Marin Hike (Mt. Tam)

Posted by moshez on June 2, 2011

When: June 26th, 2011, 10am-9pm
Where: Parking Lot of Panera Bread — 43317 Christy St., Fremont, CA
Organizer: Daniel W.

Not only will we earn one of the best views of San Francisco and the bay, we’ll visit a theatre, a wilderness lodge, and maybe even the beach!

Since we’re going up to Marin County, this adventure will take the entire day. Please plan accordingly. Pack a dairy/vegetarian lunch with you. We will have dairy/vegetarian dinner at Tony Tutto Pizza in Mill Valley (246 E. Blithedale Ave., Mill Valley, CA).

If you live in the South Bay, your journey will be shorter and cheaper if you head up the 880 and meet for a carpool in Fremont, at 10am, in the parking lot of Panera Bread‎ (43317 Christy St., Fremont, CA).

Post to the wall to organize other carpools, and/or to let us know to wait for you at the Fremont carpool.

Mt. Tam day-use fees are $8 per car, so we’ll split the fees among the passengers in each car.

You can also meet us at the trailhead at noon. Find the Bootjack Day Use Area through the park brochure below or search for (37.908818,-122.601894) on Google Maps.

The hike will be 4.5 miles with 600ft elevation change. After the hike, we may hang out at nearby Stinson Beach for a little while, before heading off to dinner.

Recommended Gear:

  • Hiking boots
  • Water
  • Lots of dairy/vegetarian snacks (we’ll probably be eating lunch a bit later)
  • Dairy/vegetarian lunch
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • Beach gear
  • Change of clothes/shoes (if you’d like before dinner)
  • Money for gas, tolls, parking, and pizza

We’ll start by taking Bootjack trail to Old Stage Road Trail and then end up at the West Point Lodge. At the lodge, there are bathrooms, clean water, a wrap around deck with overhang, and gorgeous views of the SF Bay. We can eat lunch here, chill for a while and then start our way back via a different trail. We’ll take the Rock Springs trail to the Mountain Theatre (RR and water at this location), rest for a few minutes and might even see an improv show by fellow Jews’ Next Dor members! From the Mountain Theatre, we’ll conclude by taking the Bootjack Trail to the parking lot/start point.
