Where to Meet:

We’ll assemble at the Tiburon ferry dock at 9:45 a.m.

Bring lunch, water, dress in layers, and wear good hiking boots. Bring poles if you normally use them.

The ferry from Tiburon leaves at 10 a.m., arriving at 10:10 a.m. There is no long-term street parking near the ferry dock in Tiburon. However, there are all-day parking lots a few blocks away.

We intend to meet the last ferries back to Tiburon and San Francisco, leaving at 4:20 p.m. and 4:10 p.m. respectively. If you have any questions about this outing, email Ken Lavin or call him at (415) 543-6771 x321.
