DECEMBER 20 LONG HIKE
ANNADEL STATE PARK
This is a shuttle hike that covers Shultz, Ridge, Marsh, Two Quarry and Lawndale Trails. It is about 10+ miles with not too much elevation gain. The hike will leave the Oakmont parking lot at 8:30 a.m. The hike leader is Jason Wilkenfeld, 707-978-0020.

DECEMBER 20 INTERMEDIATE HIKE
MOUNT BURDELL
This will be a moderate intermediate hike in the Mt. Burdell Open Space Preserve, adjacent to Olompali State Historical Park, with magnificent views of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Diablo and Novato. This is a loop hike of about 5 miles with about 1100 feet of elevation gain, mostly on fire roads. Leave the Berger Center at 9:00. Hike leader is Holly Kelley, 843-3155.

INTERMEDIATE HIKE DECEMBER 27
TENNESSEE VALLEY
This 6-mile hike with 1,000’ elevation gain is moderately steep in places. We’ll climb the Miwok Trail out of Tennessee Valley (in Mill Valley) to the Coyote Ridge Trail, which provides stunning 3600 views of the ocean, bay, valleys, and Mount Tam. Descending on the Coastal Trail fire road to Tennessee Valley, we’ll walk out to the beach for lunch. From the beach it’s an easy 2-mile walk back to our cars on mostly flat trails through beautiful Tennessee Valley. Bring lunch, water, hiking poles. Heavy rain cancels. Hike leader is Linne McAleer, 415-847-4420. Leave Berger at 9 a.m.

DECEMBER 27 LONG HIKE
JENNER HEADLANDS
Join us for a hike at the new Jenner Headlands Wild Land Conservancy Preserve. The hike will be 10 miles with about 1700 foot of elevation gain. Our hike will begin on Sea to Sky trail connecting to Russian Gulch trail and returning to the parking lot via Sea to Sky trail. Many rare and endangered species inhabit the property. Bring a lunch, water, hiking poles and layered clothing because the weather can be a bit unpredictable at the coast. Meet at Berger Center 8:30 a.m. and carpool to a few miles North of Jenner. Hike leaders Lorna King and Jewel Watterson, 707-206-2373.

A REMINDER TO ALL HIKERS: If the hiking trail is more than 30 miles round trip from Oakmont, it is customary to compensate your driver at least $5.00 for gas.
