The hike provides a sampler of the best of what Point Reyes has to offer: beautiful pine forests and meadows, sweeping coastal views, and a few beaches that are perfect lunch spots. Most of Sky trail is shaded, but Coast trail is exposed to the sun and wind. Don't miss the short round trip to Sculptured beach: if the tide is low enough, you will be able to see interesting rock formations and a small arch on the South side of the beach.
