Did this hike yesterday (a Sat) wearing 36# pack for training. It's was a gorgeous crisp sunny day and the views were incredible. Exposed and open, a nice change from the wooded trails of Tam. Very challenging with the weighted pack. The only downside was it was a very busy trail, especially towards the Rodeo end.

I just wanted to add that despite what is listed here, dogs are NOT ALLOWED at Point Reyes National Seashore on any of the trails with minor exceptions. Exceptions include Bolinas Ridge Trail and North and South Point Reyes Beaches.

Awesome trail! They truly mean hard! Some very steep inclines!

Beautiful views. Check out the hill area before descending down to Rodeo beach. Old concrete structures with graffiti and great views of the ocean, Golden Gate Bridge and SF downtown.

Beautiful hike with our dog but it was difficult one! I would recommend this hike! Remember to wear layers as it can get pretty windy depending on which side of the mountain you're on.

I only completed part of this trail, but it was amazing. Great views of the coast, and the city! Gorgeous area!

This is a beautiful dog-friendly hike that is surrounded by the pacific. Lots of uphill/downhill, and hard on the knees coming down. We brought a packed lunch and ate at the top, it was gorgeous. You can see the golden-gate, and I heard you can hike to it, (9+miles out). Super sunny with little shade, so do not forget your sunscreen. Several group members were sun-burnt. Definitely nothing else better than relaxing at the beach afterwards with a fire and some much deserved booze. :) 4-stars because it was pretty crowded. Lots of tourists.
