A ravishing hike with a wide variety of landscapes. The first part (from Pantoll) was mostly downhill, through live oak and meadows. We were tired when we got to Stinson, but had a great time lolling on the beach and snacking on fries and ice cream from the beachside snack stand. Then we did the Steep Ravine part--absolutely beautiful, shady, mossy-ferny glades. A long hike, but worth it! Stopped at the Mountain House Inn on the way back for a beer on their deck--watched the moon rise over the East Bay. A perfect Bay Area day!
