Point Reyes is a few miles north of San Francisco and offers a number of great hiking options. There are short hikes to the beach from several entrances, as well as longer backpacking options. There are many campsites near the beaches with water and facilities. The lighthouse on the point is also a major tourist attraction, as are the wildflowers in the spring.

Very nice hike. There are no dogs allowed, yet we saw three people with their dogs. The trek down to the beach from the falls is tricky and slick, but worth it. In and out with a stop for lunch, and a stop at the falls, it took us about 4 hours.

Do be on the watch for the spur trail that takes you down to the falls. Don't just blindly follow the group in front of you. Many people hike the trail without realizing the main trail does not take you directly to the falls. Is a lovely hike!

Amazing views at the end of the trail!!

Beautiful!!

Long hike, mostly flat. Would have rather taken a horse. Beautiful views towards the end though. The actual Arch Rock trail is closed. At the branching of the trail hikers are forced to take a different route due to it being closed off. Took about 4/5 hours total.

Beautiful hike. Parking at the trailhead will be challenging if you don't start early.

The very best for running. Tough start but the rest is relatively easy for trail runners.

Great hike. Hike at beginning than a walk for the rest of the trail.

This is one of my favorite hikes of all time. The views are stunning and the waterfall is dreamy. It's a great day hike to bring friends or family who are visiting California for their first time.

Moderate but long. It has two high incline points. Recommend wind protection, sun screen, gloves, tight fitting hat, water, all weather shoes (there are some muddy areas), and if you get there past noon, a flashlight.

Beautiful hike. I love doing the uphill part first and then having a nice relaxing hike the rest of the way.

We had lunch on the beach. Took a swing on the buoy swing.

Cruised back to the parking lot on the very easy ending.

In the field next to the last outhouse there are some nice tree benches for a little nap before returning to civilization.

It was a great hike. I think it is better to arrive early to take full advantage of the real beauty that this trail can offer. If you don't mind too many people or boom boxes, then go aftet midday.
