A great family hike, lots of interesting stuff for the kiddoes, the PRNS museum is a real place. Not a brisk hike, but s great place to start your day.

Really nice trail. Parking is easy and you may even run into a cow or two on the trail :) Very easy hike.

Not dog friendly. Drove out here to find a sign that says no dogs. Super disappointed as it looked really nice.

nice spot to head to the coast. I'd love to camp here!

perfect length for a morning hike. We took the coast trail way, and at the beach went down to the water to hike that
.5 Mile portion with the rich sound of waves. brought our lunch to eat at the camp picnic table, and use the outhouse conveniently located before the last 2 miles back up fire trail to Laguna trail parking lot.

Incredibly peaceful hike through imperial redwoods at the Lagunitas creek valley floor and then ascends past small tributary creeks to reach Douglas firs in the upper canopy. The hike is lightly trafficked and presents lots of great views. The hike culminates when it reaches Pioneer Tree - perhaps the only old growth Redwood left in the park. Unexpectedly great winter hike.

Nice trail with a walk-in campground two miles from the parking lot. That’s close enough to pack in all the eats and drinks, set up camp, consume all the heavy stuff (beer, bbq, etc.), then be back to a normal load by morning, ready to hike on.

Very quick hike with a fault line where a big earthquake occurred.

Great little easy hike right by the visitors center. Decided to do it to get a bit of a stretch after driving from Reno before going on to explore more of Pt. Reyes. Has some nice interpretive signs and feels quite deep in the woods for being so close to the visitor center. It was a great short hike that my 2 year old son easily did all by himself.

I love Point Reyes been backpacking it since the late 60's, the food storgae boxes will not keep out rats or mice store your food in a bear canister or Rat Sack inside the food storage boxes ..... trust me on this.

Great short hike with gorgeous vast open views

Nice hike, super easy. a couple of downed trees at the start that are a little tricky to get through but smooth sailing afterwards.

Beautiful and easy stroll among redwood. The leisurely walk took us about 2 hours with us pausing many times to capture beautiful scenery on our phones.

beautiful!

it is beautiful, easy, and peaceful. the trail is easy to follow and the coastal section offers views of the cliffs and 10 mile beaches. My only complaint is that the 1.7 miles back along the gravel path is not as interesting as the first 3 miles. would walk the path again, but turn around and go back up the other way once the path turns from the coast.

interesting information about the 1906 earthquake.

Quite muddy at the moment, but that makes it nice and secluded. Lush, short hike.

Great hike. Hike at beginning than a walk for the rest of the trail.

This was a fun and pretty little trail. We did this mistakenly as a warm up for the Tomales Point Trail which is located farther NW from here. Lots of Holsteins grazing on lush green grass with big boulders nestled among them. Go all the way to the Bay and it gets real marshy, especially in winter time. Part of the path at the Bay was underwater and real sloshy. The hills are quite enchanting though, and I can't wait to see what it looks like with the wildflowers in spring!

Fun Fact: The trail is right on the San Andreas Fault. The fault is the reason why the Tomales Bay exists and is the shape that it is. Over thousands of years a part of the fault filled with sea water creating the Tomales Bay in Northern California.

A great easy little loop trail for the whole family. It's beautiful and educational. My daughter loved seeing all the deer.

We enjoyed stopping on the beach halfway through the hike. We saw two deer right off the path to the beach.

Stayed overnight at coast camp (note - you need to reserve online). It was foggy and there was overcast and a light breeze during our stay. Definitely check the weather before heading to the trail. We took laguna trail and expect a slight ascent at the beginning and on your way back to the trailhead.

Beautiful views and pretty flat trail. it was sunny but there was a nice breeze from the ocean winds. Had a fantastic time!

it was very pleasant with a little strenuous on Laguna trail. The course gravel on the Coast Trail was not comfortable to walk on. Do not try to walk along Beach for awhile and then get back on the trail. You can go to the beach, but plan to take the same way back to the trail.
