Easy walk to and along lagoon then over a bit of sand to beach. No shade but it was a cool day. Plenty of bird activity and a possible otter sighting in the lagoon. Had lunch on a log at a nice spot with view of lagoon.

No access to go down the stairs (closed Tues-Thur). Bummer, will try again. But great views of Point Reyes Shoreline.

Loved the trail great views n not crowded

Great little hike! Only takes about 10 minutes and has beautiful views. We went in March and saw a ton of elephant seals!! Worth the drive.

Started at end of Perth in Inverness. Went counter-clockwise to get the incline out of the way first and was glad I did. Lovely views of the bay in several areas, and beautiful pine forests throughout. The trail did get kinda narrow in places but it was not overgrown - extremely passable. Most of the trail was nice and wide. Good amount of incline but not super steep on the way up or down, which I appreciated.

Most of the trail is shaded and narrow. Not many pretty views 2 miles in. There are two beaches in the beginning that are small and a nice place to sit and enjoy.

Great short hike with fantastic views! The whole area is stunning but get there early if you want to park near the trailhead. Only busses allowed after about 8am. Bring a windbreaker and beanie!

I loved this. Most of it is stairs but it’s a great well maintained set of stairs. It’s beautiful

You’re hiking on sand so it is tough, but it’s beautiful here and not very crowded

Huge waves rocked the beach yesterday, but there was still plenty of sand to walk on. We enjoyed walking along the bluff above the beach, exploring the abandoned houses. Quiet walk along the beach. Not a “hike” per say. If you ask any rangers or park employees they don’t acknowledge this as a “hike.” Trust the trail map and don’t miss out! Beautiful place.

Lots of cattle, never really sure we were on the trail in the first place. Too many other great trails to spend much time here. We did get lots of cute pictures with mama’s and their babies. Cows, that is.

beautiful hike when you get there closer to late afternoon. thank goodness we didmt stay at sunset beach fir the sunset, we got back to the bridge at sunset and my hands were going numb. definitely recommend bringing wind gear as well cold accessories (gloves, hate, etc). Great over all hike though! saw some elk intermingling with the local cows on the way out

Fantastic hike on a sunny winter day. Muddy conditions on trail but fine with the right gear. The beach trail is overgrown (I suspect many did what we did and continued onto the beach rather than try to take the trail). Very pleasant easy hike.

5 stars for the lighthouse view, what a frame! Most of the trail is stairs with easy break points. Ride to the trailhead is equally amazing.

Nice loop that can be started from the end of Perth Way in Inverness, which shortens the drive to get there. Parking is very limited though. Recommended counter clockwise to climb the steeper part first. Nice views on Tomales Bay, good path. Unfortunately no ocean views, and the trail on the south part of the loop gets very narrow. A bit overgrown in some parts, but seemed to have been cleared recently (as of December 2019), so pretty well maintained. Overall a pretty good hike.

Easy trail. Great views. No boots needed, but a windbreaker is a must.

Drive to parking lot is beautiful, road a bit bumpy in areas. Trail is easy but muddy at points, specially after rain. Shuttle Bus service from Drakes Beach will be in operation during weekends and holidays through end of March or mid-April 2020 (this includes Point Reyes Lighthouse Trail as well).

Drive to parking lot is beautiful, road a bit bumpy in areas. Trail to lighthouse overlook is paved and easy. Lighthouse is closed Tuesday-Thursday. Shuttle Bus service from Drakes Beach will be in operation during weekends and holidays through end of March or mid-April 2020 (this includes Chimney Rock Trail as well).

Amazing view, rough road to get there. Public restroom very nice and easy parking, ( Sunday early morning 12/15/2019) It is restoration in November 2019.(I’m so lucky). Marvelous place, with good visitors facilities. I missed chance to chitchat with the rangers to learn more about it.( I should since I really want to be one of them). 308 steps down to see while tower and red lantern, 6 sided tower with balcony stand on the top of blue ocean under.( I’m in the heaven). Come and visit it. ( don’t forget to check there schedule before you heading there).

Early sections are excellent but the stretch to Drakes Head is bumpy cow trails. The view makes up for it.
