Next Brown Alumni Hike this Sunday: Mount Tam Loop
via Aliisa Rosenthal (’05)
The next Brown Alumni Bay Area hike will be this Sunday, June 20th. We’ll meet at the Trailhead at 11 am, as usual.
This 7.3 mile Mount Tam loop goes from Stinson Beach to Pantoll and back, through gorgeous woods, high grassy slopes, and a lush steep ravine. The hike is moderate, with about 1600 feet in elevation change. This should be a good bit easier (and cooler) than our last hike!
We should finish the hike around 3 pm and, as usual, we’ll “apres-hike” at a good local spot for those interested in a post-hike refreshment.
Please let me know if you plan on attending. I have a few spots in my car if anyone needs a ride from the city.
See you next Sunday!

Directions: From US 101 in Marin County, exit CA 1/Mill Valley/Stinson Beach and drive on Shoreline Highway to the junction with Almonte, about 1 mile. Turn left, remaining on Shoreline, and drive about 2.5 miles to the junction with Panoramic Highway. Turn right on Panoramic and drive about 1 mile to the junction with Muir Woods Road; stay straight on Panoramic (right lane). Continue about 7.5 miles (past Pantoll) to the junction with CA 1, just before the town of Stinson Beach. Turn right, drive about 0.2 mile, then turn right (at the fire station) onto Belvedere Avenue. Look for parking on the left side of the road before the “do not enter/wrong way” signs.
