Will You Go Out With Us?

Go out this summer and do any activity we’ve ever written about in Weekend Sherpa (seriously, there’s 10 years’ worth of outdoor activities!) and earn yourself some excellent gifts, including a Weekend Sherpa t-shirt and travel wine glasses from our “partner in wine,” Line 39. Here are few ideas to get you going!

1) San Francisco's Middle Earth

No need to travel to New Zealand to visit Middle Earth. San Francisco’s Mount Sutro Open Space is practically Hobbiton—a hidden “shire” in the middle of the city. Okay, maybe not quite as magical, but still an incredible place to…

2) Lake Loop

The template for a perfect multipurpose park? Hundreds of acres of open space, wending hiking and biking trails, glistening lakes, and picnic spots galore. Spring Lake and Howarth Park in Santa Rosa certainly fit this bill. The two parks border…

3) Afternoon on the Island

What is it about tiny islands in the middle of lakes? There’s something that just draws you in for further explorations. It’s even more fun when getting there is half the adventure because you have to reach it by canoe…

In California we’re pretty lucky; we’re home to the great outdoors and amazing wines—and Line 39 celebrates both! The 39th parallel runs right through the heart of California wine country and is the inspiration for Line 39. They got their…

Secret passageways aren’t just found in the movies. The East Bay has over 400 of them winding unseen through the hillsides. Explore Oakland’s hidden passages on a 6-mile urban loop hike using shortcuts originally built to help an influx of…

6) The Original SF Giants

The Giants' opening day is on its way (April 10!). Before the baseball team, came the original San Francisco Giants: coast redwoods, the tallest living things on earth! Old-growth coast redwoods once flourished in great numbers here until logging altered…

7) What a Rush!

Mount Tam’s Cataract Falls is the bobsled course of waterfalls: over a mile of twisting, turning, tumbling water—gushing, rushing, and making a splash! The real joy is hiking right beside Cataract Creek as it’s chugging on all cylinders, where the…

8) Call of the Coyote

Wild and scenic Coyote Hills Regional Park is probably best known for its birdlife—from hawks to herons, kestrels to kingfishers. But its 978 acres of marshland and grassy hills is also fringed with flowers now—wildflowers! Enjoy it all on a…
