I was stunned to have the whole place to myself during a week were every hike-in site along the point Reyes seashore was booked up. Here in the pristine live oaks nothing but empty sites as far as the eye can see. I will mention that because of the spring rains the first creek crossing was running a bit high (knee level, I’m 5’5”)

This trail is heavily used by horses. There is a stable and horse rentals at the trail head. The trail is in very bad condition and is rutted, muddy, and unsightly. I don’t recommend it for walking.

Great terrain, varied with the up and down hill, and gorgeous throughout! Will definitely be coming back

Great place to backpack right on the water. Moderate hike with older kids. Note stream crossing about 3/4 miles in. Tables and fire rings at campsites. Bass fishing is productive off the banks. Best to go in fall and early spring to avoid the heat and summer boat-in overnighters.

Nice shirt little hike, good information given along the way about various things. Not many vistas but as I said good little hike.

My friends and I were looking for a morning hike that was close by to where we live and found Little Flat to Bummer Peak Trail. The trail had beautiful views and for the most part was well maintained. Due to the lack of rain this January the footing was very good, although we wondered how it would be during an average winter, as there were several creeks that you crossed. We were not able to find any information before hand about the details or directions of the trail itself. The trail head (once we found it) did not have a map posted anywhere that we could find. We were able to find a small sign identifying that we had the trail we were looking for. There were several forks in the trail that we guessed at, but as beginning hikers with two of our group at least 75 years old it was not a good feeling. The view from Bummer Peak was beautiful, but we would have felt more confident if there were more specifics about this trail.
