I've been 5 times now. There's so much to see, this loop barely scratches the surface.

After you get off Bear Valley it is a steady climb up Old Pine that generally flattens out on Sky with a long all down hill trip on Meadow. The best part is very low usage-private-quiet...the tourist stay on Bear Valley. Downside...no views. We clocked it at 7.1 from our car.

Very scenic and peaceful trail. Only saw about four other hikers which added to the enjoyment of the natural surroundings. Highly recommend this hike. I can't wait to do it again!

The is one of the prettiest hikes in Point Reyes. Nice gradual incline on the Old Pine Trail. Can be pretty wet near the top. I ran into some stinging nettles and watch out for some spots of poison oak. The trail down Meadow Trail has a few steep spots but overall very easy hiking. It's never crowded, often times you will have the trail all to yourself. Gorgeous photo ops all over the place. Love it !
