A short walk up to the summit of Point Reyes Hill (1336'). This is an excellent location for panoramic views and sunsets. remember to bring your camera.

Awesome trail with great views! A tad over grown, but I think that’s adds to the allure. Wear long pants!

I would suggest avoiding this hike. The trail is very narrow for the most part with plants leaping onto the trail. Some of those plants also looked like poison oak and poison ivy, yikes!!

Nice hike. Bucklin is the star. As others have mentioned, fallen pines are currently clogging Drakes View up a bit (I assumed because of the shutdown, but it sounds like it's an ongoing issue). It's still a great loop for beautiful views on Bucklin and flora/fauna spotting all the way through. There's a stream crossing around .1 miles up Muddy Hollow Road. You'll have to do it twice to complete the loop. It's not impassable - you can cross on stones or a makeshift log bridge, as I did with no problem - but you might get wet.

Definitely moderate effort, not easy. Drakes view trail is very over grown (hiked November 2018), long trousers and sleeves recommended. The Bayview trail was a nice stroll back down, it’s much more open and well maintained.

Don’t be fooled, not easy should be moderate! And there is no view from Drakes view trail. But a decent workout

Not sure why this is rated easy as it's mostly uphill and somewhat challenging. The trail is really over grown with all of the rain this year so it's a bit more difficult that usual. Bring plenty of water and a snack to enjoy at the very top. Awesome views and a picnic table up there. Wear long pants and boots/high socks for this one.

Great views at the top! There were a lot of trees across the trail at times, made for some slow going at times but worth it.

Not at all what I expected. From the previous review, I was expecting a nice and brisk journey through the Point Reyes National Seashore. What started as a beautiful adventure quickly became a nigtmare about 1 mile into the hike. Trail became non-existent and overrun with brush, thorns and poisen oak. Also, it is basically an uphill battle through this prickly and poisenous jungle. The only redeeming value was the views at the top and breif breaks from the brush where you get to walk through a magical and calm forest. If you dare venture here, where boots, long pants, and I personally recommend a machete. Happy hiking.

Fabulous for a March hike, wild flowers in bloom, especially Douglas Iris, cool day so exposure time on Inverness Ridge felt good. Parked at the end of Mt Vision Rd, (Off Sir Francis Drake Blvd west bound, stay left just past the Duck Cove Marshall Beach Rd turn)....GREAT VIEWS EAST AND WEST, Elephant Hill & St Helena, (E, NE) and Drakes Bay and the Pacific, Limatour Rd to the South. We stayed on Inverness Ridge for l.4 til Drakes View Trail....thru Pine Tree tunnels, dense new growth since the 1995 fire, emerging at lovely Iris spotted trail & creek, a bridge, a bench with magical note depositary spot;D Decided to take Bay view back up, as seemed like a bit less altitude lost/regain from heading down to Muddy Hollow & returning up Bucklin. Husband & I not hiking as much, & the up/down altitudes are not, um, spelled out too well. Overall, it turns out it was a 7.7 round trip, became longer than I'd managed to add up from the Tom Harrison Map....seemed real long from Muddy Hollow to trailhead where we originally went down Drakes View. Very glad to take a new-to-us trail, and perfect for a March day....didn't pass anyONE til 2 people near Muddy Hollow.
