APRIL 1, SATURDAY: SOULAJULE RESERVOIR, MARIN COUNTY
Leader: Ken Robin (510)926-9220 email@example.com. Meet: 9:15am under the Safeway sign at Market & Dolores. Depart 9:30. Rating: Moderate, 8 miles, 300 feet elevation gain. Discover Marin's unknown reservoir. Not a difficult hike, but certainly an adventurous one. Soulajule Reservoir is in the middle of a beautiful, pristine part of Marin. The reservoir itself is very pretty. There are no established trails at the reservoir, so we will be literally taking "cow trails" (yes, cows graze around the reservoir) around the right side of the reservoir. This will involve some uneven ground, and inevitably some poison oak, although we'll do our best to avoid it. Mixed grassland and forest. Long pants and long-sleeved shirts would be prudent. Bring: Water, lunch, study shoes and poles for the uneven ground, layers of clothes for spring and poison oak, hat and sunscreen for the sunny areas. Canceled in event of heavy rain. Driving distance 86 miles round trip. Carpooling cost: $9.00 per passenger (includes $7 tolls). Alternate meeting place: 10:45 at the parking lot at the base of Soulajule reservoir dam. Take highway 101 through Marin to Novato, and take the San Marin exit (#463) and turn left. Continue on San Marin to Novato Blvd and turn right. Turn right on the Point Reyes-Petualuma Rd, and in a half mile turn left on Hicks Valley Rd. Turn left on the Petaluma-Marshall Rd and go 3 more miles. Turn left on Arroyo Sausal Rd (there should be a Soulajule Reservoir sign) at 1400 Petaluma-Marshall road. Continue through the automatic gate to the parking lot at the base of the reservoir.
