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.

We made it to the water in about 90 minutes. Nice short hike. Windy, but worth the walk on the beach.

Perfect set of moderate Trail as it was neither too extensively hard nor too easy. Last Friday we got on the trail at 10:00 AM, few cars parked. A strong mix of breeze and heat wave at 75 degrees finishing at Alamere by 12:00 PM.

Perfect picnic setting with the Falls to your left.

Needless to say, Bring Spray OFF and SPF. We all got poison oak in part of exploring off trail- beware. Wear spandex and thing long sleeve.

Escaped the valley heat with this scenic trail. Great shade along most of the route with expansive views of the coast and the inner lakes. Cutoff down to the falls is a small rabbit hole opening in the brush that opens up to a well worn path to the beach. Last drop off is steep with loose gravel but if you're experienced it's not a problem. Be careful with the poison oak, it's everywhere, especially along the cutoff trail. Wear long sleeve and pants if possible, otherwise rinse thoroughly at the stream that feeds the falls. Worth doing!

The views are spectacular on this trail. The descent is picturesque and challenging at times (lots of overgrowth). Arriving at the beach is bliss.
