Awesome trail for Trail Running. Coast Trail trailhead is right off Limantour Road and if you're an endurance athlete the Coast Trail literally covers almost the entire Drakes Bay portion of Point Reyes National Seashore. You could take it as far south as the Alamere Falls trailhead at the southern part of the peninsula. Soft dirt trails, awesome wood bridges and creeks, absolutely stunning coastline, amazing wildlife viewing, private secluded beaches! Truly one of the best trails in California. I ran it from beginning to Arch Rock (which sadly collapsed) and then back again for a 16 mile run.

It was a nice hike. Very beautiful views but it was difficult to know where to go or where it started as there were no signs from where the map took us. But all in all it was very beautiful to visit.

Beautiful trail that start just down from the parking lot. You need to go 2/10ths of a mile or so on the beach and then head east over the beach head to get to trail. Pretty flowers and plants, a couple of wood bridges over streams. Some great views of the hills and coast. Remember to head towards beach at one of the last turns or you will find yourself adding a mile or so into a long hike. Hiked with my 1 year old on my back, she loved it.
