hikemowardHey NS I'm going out to the Bay Area of California to help my sister move in mid May and I'm gonna be out there for a bit. I've done a lot of exploring of San Francisco in the past and I love it, but I was curious if anyone from there could give me some ideas of things to do. I love to skate so I'm bringing my deck so any good skatepark suggestions would be dope. Also I love to hike and explore nature so I plan to try to go to Yosemite and the redwood forest. Any of you guys done that in the past and have any suggestion? Also any idea if Tahoe will still have skiing?
I live in the East Bay!
Yosemite is pretty far, but there's a lot of good outdoorsy stuff within 30 minutes of the Bay: Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Woods, Tilden Regional Park, Mt. Diablo State Park, and the fire trails of the Oakland hills can keep you really busy. There's also tons of beach potential: Stinson Beach, Pt. Reyes, and Kirby Cove are all cool spots and are pretty close.
If you're willing to drive a little farther, Big Sur is just south of Monterey and has tons of hiking and some pretty cool beaches. Obviously Tahoe for snow if it's still around.
As was mentioned, there's tons to drink if you're 21, and the Oakland/SF scene can be pretty fun.
OP: "If you suddenly skied off a huge fuckin cliff and you only had time to throw one last trick before you died, what would it be?"
