The Woodland Outdoor Wanderers outing to Angel Island State Park is still scheduled for September 23. However, there is an important time change to note. Participants should meet at 7:45 AM
at the Woodland Presbyterian Church at 1324 Columbia Drive to sign-in, pick up maps and form carpools. A prompt departure from the church at 8:00 AM will allow enough time to make the 10:00 AM ferry departure from Tiburon.
The fare is $15 for adults, less for seniors and children. A $1 fee is charged for each bicycle. Information about the ferry service, schedules and fares is available at www.angelislandferry.com
. Only cash or checks
are accepted for payment. Pay parking (up to $16/day) is available near the ferry terminal. Again, only cash is accepted for parking.
Once ashore people can explore the island by hiking, biking, or riding a tram ($16.50 for adults). The 5-mile perimeter trail around the island is accessible to hikers and cyclists. Additional footpaths and bikeways are available. Bicycles can be rented. Bicyclists are advised to bring a bike lock as none are not available to be rented. Cyclists under 18 must wear helmets. Dogs are not allowed on the island. Food may be purchased at a cafe near the Visitor Center. More information about the park can be found at www.parks.ca.gov/angelisland
