A ~30 mile loop touring much of Point Reyes, with nearly 15 miles just along its beautiful coastline. Gets a little crowded around the Alamere Falls, but most of the trip is very lightly trafficked. Beautiful views of the ocean from from beach level and from 1200 feet of elevation.

Everything promised! If I were to go again, I would bring more water resistant gear, not because of rain but because of high wet brush.

Beautiful way to see the full coast line, hills, and lakes of the area.
