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.

Incredible views. It was harder than moderate IMO.

Great views! Lots of hills and a bit of sand. An abundance of picture opportunities! The trek out was nice, and as a beginner, the trek back pushed me physically. Overall an excellent day!

Very cool. The solitude is great, there's literally not a soul on this hike. Also, if you adventure up the hill when you see a bizarre abandoned watch tower, there's a whole abandoned little town up there... anyways, it's definitely worth a look.

Hard to find the trail in the beginning and even after I found it, I wasn't certain that it was the trail. The trail appeared to be unmaintained and is heavily worn by cows creating uneven terrain (watch your ankles). The end of the trail was anticlimactic...Try the nearby Estero Trailhead instead.

Another epic hike at Pt Reyes. You move through various ecosystems - rain forest to beach. One of the most beautiful hikes in Bay Area.

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.
