beautiful views at the end of the trail!!! be prepared for some rock climbing though.. not for beginners.

One of my favorite trails! Definitely stop by Alamere Falls on the way out. There is an arrow made of rocks on the trail that point in the direction of the Falls.

Well marked with lots of ocean views. Moderate traffic later in the day. Beach is easily accessible from Wildcat camp as are the falls

Perfect day hike. Pretty lush views the whole way then gorgeous waterfalls in full force. Definitely wear your hiking boots, as there are a lot of steep parts with loose footing

Path is wide, but slightly deceiving as path narrows (single file) when u go to falls. There are no signs and passed it. someone made an arrow pointing to falls made of rocks. Well worth the trip yesterday....will do again.

This was a gorgeous hike! To the point made by others: Yes, it does get a bit crowded in the parking lot and on the trail on weekends. My suggestion: Go on a weekday and/or start early in the a.m., and carpool if possible. Yes, the last little stretch of road to get to the parking spot is a bit rough on cars that are lower to the ground. The hike itself is a nice one! Watch for poison oak - suggest you wear light layers/long sleeves and pants to protect from exposure. I agree with the Moderate rating, as some of the less experienced folks in our group struggled on some of the hills and on the scramble down rocks to see the waterfall. I highly recommend the hike for views and diverse terrain. Well worth the time!

There are way too many people there, giving it a touristy feel. The parking lot is congested and the last mile or so of the road in is not paved (don’t take your Ferrari on this hike). They should have rated the hike as easy. The views are nice but this is far from the best trail at Point Reyes. If you still feel compelled to hike it be sure not to go on a weekend.

Had a Great Time hiking this trail! Come early as parking lot becomes full by 11:00am

A lot of various foliage and different kinds of terrain to keep it interesting! Mostly down hill in, more incline coming out from the falls. :)

Excellent hike, can take the long trail and really get a sense of nature, then reward yourself after ten miles at the beautiful falls at sunset

Well maintained easy side of moderate horse/hiking trail. Strolled the entire way, climbed the old groves and scaled the shell rock cliff to the beach to enjoy a lovely sunset. My only issue is the high traffic on a winter Tuesday and the trash it brings. (But I already knew it was high traffic) Great trail to introduce someone to hiking or trail running.

Great hike! Beautiful views, steep scramble down to the bottom of the falls. Make sure to follow the rock arrow off the main Coast Trail and watch out for poison oak on the way down.

Amazing views of ocean during hike. The falls are stunning! Able to see some wildlife, pair of bald eagles, bunnies and a fox.

We followed the rock arrow on a whim and made it to the waterfall without realizing we were on the path. Make sure to keep your eyes out for it!

Although the trail itself can be very dusty if the wind picks up, it is a well-maintained trail. The rocks form of the arrow is very easy to miss!!! We used the 2nd lake as the guide to look out for the "arrow". The falls is very uniquely located on the beach.

Really enjoyed this trail.

Beautiful hike. The sign to the waterfall was gone ☹️
