Amazing trek. Challenging to get to the falls and back in one day but well worth the effort. Gorgeous views and standing in Alamere Falls at the halfway mark (if you are doing a day hike) and feeling the cool fresh water and mist is a good break for your hike back. Would love to camp at Wildcat next time and explore other trails in the area.

4/21/2018. Took the long way there and back for 13.5 total miles. Everything is so green right now, plus tons of wildflowers. This hike is tough to beat.

We started around 1pm on Saturday, the traffic was quite heavy, but the views totally still worth it. We went with 2 little kids, the first 1-2 miles are quite manageable and you still get to see a lot. We saw lots of elks and wildflowers, gorgeous! The wind can get strong sometimes, so make sure to dress properly.

Pretty beautiful

Loved this trail where fresh water meets salt. Absolutely beautiful! Bucket list ✔

4/8/2018 must go now, flowers in full bloom, water fall is huge after this rain season

Lengthy but calm. Views are so incredibly worth it. Go on a weekday and start before 10am. My favorite hike to date. Will be returning.

Bring a picnic, friend, swim suit for the lake and enjoy!

Came for a day trip with the family and a couple girlfriends. Was just beautiful. We walked down the entire beach. Found ship ruins and hiked up the sand dunes. Was a wonderful day will go back for sure.

Beautiful and fun! Best hike so far

My friend and I did this hike last month with weighted vests.
It was very mild, although my big o' hiking boots were probably too heavy for walking in sand.
We started while it was still pitch black and didn't see anyone until a mile or 2 headed back.
There is an insane amount of elk and some foxes and deer.
The flowers were beautiful. We even got some light rain, so it was wonderful!

Do this hike now, while the wildflowers are in bloom!

If you go on a weekend, start early to avoid crowds. We left at 9AM and enjoyed walking through the fog as it burned off. Passed only a few people on the way in. The last quarter of the hike (around 11:30), the trail had become unpleasantly crowded.

We are fit backpackers and finished the trail in 3 hours and 10 minutes.

Amazing hike! A family favorite.

Took the short cut to the falls and the long way back. great hike!

Love it here so much. Just saw a bald eagle fly across my car very close range on the way to this hike from Bolinas, in the lagoon. Loads of poppies are popping right now. Amazing, special place. I also found a whole, giant abalone shell at the beach but threw it back

amazing hike, start early to avoid the crowds

a great place to relax after an intense hike like Sky Trail. I would bring lunch next time.

take the short cut to the falls. It's well worth it

One of the best hike in the bay and the reward in the end of your hike is spectacular!

A short hike down to the beach that leads to incredible views of the ocean, rocks to climb on, and a beautiful place for a sunset. Will be back!

Well worth it. The way down to the falls, at the rocky area is a bit intense, as there are alot of loose small rocks and pebbles that can easily cause a slip, but there is a rope that helps. There is other ways to get down to the falls via different hiking route and walking on the beach to the falls. Plenty of shaded areas, if you start at Palomarin, you will get great views of the lake, ocean, and waterfall at the end.

Very fun! But to get to the falls, follow he mysterious rock arrow into bushes on the pathway.

Good solid hike, made it all the way to the point! Definitely with the hike, a bit windy and definitely no cover from the sun... at the end there is a bit of sand to trudge through so be ready for that... not too busy went on a weekday, will definitely do it again

Easy and kid friendly. Beautiful drive and beach!

The hike itself was beautiful. it had it all, there was forest, greenery, great views, a waterfall, and bit of rock climbing.
