August 2018 AAUW HIKES

Meet at the P&R at 9am.  Contact the Lead if you plan to meet at the trailhead.

August 03            Kortum Trail                                             Neita C

We will hike from Shell Beach to Goat Rock and return.  The hike will now be about 6 miles without a lunch break but with the option of stopping at the Korbel Deli on the way home. Bring water, a snack and your poles. We’ll be back by 3:30 with a Korbel Deli stop.

August 10            Annadel – Lawndale to Schultz Loop                Barb R

This is a 6.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail.  We’ll begin on an old road once used by stonecutters working in area basalt quarries and climb to Ledson Marsh, a prime bird habitat at 1,100 feet.  We’ll return down Schultz Canyon, a forested watercourse.  Bring water, poles and pack a light lunch.  Should be back by 2pm.

August 17                      Healdsburg Ridge                                     Debbie P
We will meet on the North side of Parkland Farms at 9:00 a.m..  Drive up Parkland Farms Blvd and turn left on Saddle Draw then left on Bridle Path. Park anywhere on the street and we will meet at the covered picnic tables. Plan on a 2 hour walk and bring your poles.  We will return before noon.

August 24            Marin Headlands                                      Hillary Kambour

This is a beautiful 6 mile loop with a 1,200 ft elevation change. It starts at the visitor center at the Marin headlands park and includes views of the ocean and the golden gate. Along the way there is an interesting cannon exhibit and it ends (almost) with a stroll along the beach. Because it is just the Marin side of the bridge, we should leave the Park and Ride at 8:30 instead of 9, arriving at the trailhead at around 10:00. We should be off the trail at 2:00 and back at the park and ride no later than 4:00. Bring poles, water and a lunch

August 31            Mill Creek                                                  Liz L

This is a moderate, out and back hike.  We make several creek crossings which can result in wet shoes, so come prepared.  Hopefully, the creeks are low. Bring a light lunch.  Should  be back by 12:30.
