Walk along the inland spit to the Estero de Limantour. This hike gives a great overview of Drakes Estero and the inner offerings of Point Reyes National Seashore.

A great nature walk with a beautiful finish. Can easily be done in a few hours, but stop, rest, and enjoy the view for awhile at Drakes Head.

Tips:
* The majority of the trail is exposed to the sun, so be sure to wear sunscreen.
* Bring water and snacks (duh)
* Be sure to wear layers, so that you can undress/dress accordingly as you get closer to the cool air of the ocean.
