Hike Date : Suday, August 17, 2014
We will meet at 10:00 AM in the parking lot just uphill from the Cliff House (at the Visitor Center next to the Merrie Way parking lot). We will explore the old Sutro mansion site and bath ruins before following the trail east along the headlands towards the Golden Gate Bridge. Trails are mainly flat with some stairs and 5.5 to 7 miles round trip – depending on where we elect to turn around. Time is 3.5 – 4.5 hours depending on our preferences. Bring layered clothing, camera, strong hiking shoes, water and snacks. Bathroom facilities are at Visitor Center, but very limited elsewhere. There are several restaurants I can suggest after the hike for lunch. If you are game, I will also lead an optional short walk up Strawberry Hill in the middle of Stow Lake (in GG Park) for some surprises many have never seen.
