Monday, July 18th 2011
meet at 6:30pm
walk departing promptly at 6:40pm
ending at approximately 8:30pm

(July 18th is World Listening Day, and the birthday of composer R. Murray Schafer)

Meeting point is the intersection of Parnassus and Medical Center Way.  We will meet at 6:30 and depart promptly at 6:40.

Andrea will be holding a RED BALLOON.

This is a mildly strenuous 2-ish mile hike involving singletrack trail and a few stairs. You may wish to bring a snack and some water.  The walk will not be wheelchair accessible.


Getting There
Here is a google maps link.

The starting point is on the eastern edge of the University of California San Francisco medical school campus, on Parnassus Ave.  We’ll meet on the corner of Parnassus and Medical Center Way.  Medical Center Way is the small street which curves away behind the main UCSF campus.

By Car:
The walk will exit Sutro Forest at 17th Street and Stanyan.  If you drive, you may want to look for parking in that area.
There is UCSF parking in the Millberry Union Public Garage at 500 Parnassus Avenue.  For the 2+ hours of the soundwalk, parking there will cost you $10.50.

By public transit:
Take the N streetcar to Hilway Ave, right at the Medical School (transfer from BART at any market street station) and walk one block up to Parnassus and Hilway.  Walk a few hundred feet east. Alternately take Muni bus route 6-Parnassus which drops you off right at the corner of Parnassus and Hilway.  Again, walk a few hundred feet east.

Update:  The soundwalk was a great success.  We will be posting a reportage.
