About the event
Starting out and finishing at the picnic area and Burdell mansion, we will hike the Miwok to the Upper Mt. Burdell trail out and back with a loop. 10.4 miles with 1,398 feet elevation. This coastal Miwok village dates back thousands of years with more recent history as the 1967 summer home of the Grateful Dead and later the Chosen Family commune before becoming a State Park. Lots of history here ! Ther trail is 73.4 % shaded by oak trees according to my shade meter.
1 hour drive time, $7.00 state park fee, cash only unless you have a pass. Bring your lunch to dine alfresco on the summit of Mt. Burdell. Departs Berger at 8:30 am. Hike leader Gary Andersen 360-778-9604
