Event: Marin Waterfall Hike with Jews’ Next Dor & Yidventure

Posted by jewsnextdor on August 11, 2011

When: August 28th, 2011, 10am-9pm
Where: Park & Ride on the South Corner of Page Mill Road & I-280, Palo Alto, CA
Organizer: Nadav S.

Hike through a lush canyon, complete with gorgeous waterfalls (one tall enough to require a ladder), a dense redwood forest, and Stinson Beach. We will also enjoy spectacular ocean vistas as we explore another part of Mount Tamalpais State Park. This hike, at 7.8 miles round-trip with an elevation change of 1500 feet, is not meant for beginners.

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 a delicious dairy/vegetarian dinner at Tony Tutto Pizza in Mill Valley (246 E. Blithedale Ave., Mill Valley, CA).

For carpools meet at the Park & Ride on the South Corner of Page Mill Road & I-280 in Palo Alto, CA at 10am. To organize other carpools, and/or to let us know to wait for you at the Palo Alto carpool please contact us either through email at or through the facebook event’s wall.

You can also meet us at the Pantoll Ranger Station (see park map below) at 11:30am. Cell reception at our destination is not great, so if you want to meet us there, please let us know through the facebook event wall or email, so we know to wait for you. There is a $6 day-use fee if you park in this paved parking lot; however, there is a small dirt parking lot at the start of Pantoll Road that is free.

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

We’ll be hiking the Matt Davis and Steep Ravine Loop. An exact description of the trails can be found at (although we will be starting the loop from the top).
