Nice short hike down to Point Reyes National Seashore to spot birds, enjoy the ocean, avoid the crowds and have a picnic. Hike down to McClure's Beach to enjoy a day at the ocean and a picnic. It's a short hike from the parking area.

Very short walk from the trailhead to the beach, map and my GPS says between 0.4-0.5 miles, downhill. Trail is dirt and can get muddy after a storm or in the spring. The clean, although there can be elk droppings in the sand. For the kids, shells are smaller here.

On a very foggy morning while the elk were grazing, we ventured to the far reaches of Pierce Point Road to McClures Beach. We had this very nice remote beach on Point Reyes National Seashore all to ourselves (other than the many many birds everywhere). Great peace and quiet and gradual slope to the beach and back. Recommend this if you have 30-45 minutes to get a taste of Point Reyes!
