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.

the trail was way too rocky for my liking. but then again I didn't wear the right shoes. besides that it was awesome. And a challenge.

Some good views. Good waterfall at the end. I arrived around 3PM and I found a spot close to the trailhead, but I be prepared to see cars parked on the side of the road a mile away from the parking area. Overcrowded.

Great views at the end! I prefer more trees though!

A large part of the trail (probably 1/3) is seriously overgrown, almost disappearing entirely in some areas. It's a slog getting through those parts -- and wow, do you not want to wear shorts -- but the view at the top is amazing. The climb is steady but there are occasional flat sections to give your calves a rest. We enjoyed the hike but if no trail maintenance is done, we suspect it will be quite difficult to get through in another month.

Easy trail, definitely worth it if you are interested in watching seals
