It took me over twenty five year of living in the Bay Area to set foot on this island, and finally I did over the weekend. It takes an hour drive and another 30 minutes ferry to get on this island, but all worth it. Definitely do the hike to Mt Livermore. It takes about 2h30m round trip with stops along the way for photos and water breaks. The total elevation gain is only 800ft.
I asked myself why haven’t I been here?
