Bear Valley Romp to Arch Rock then Potluck On The Beach

  • Oct 5, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Plan:

This is a beautiful loop of about 8 miles covering the best of the varied landscape in Pt-Reyes. We'll take the Bear Valley trail from the Visitor Center out to a beautiful meadow where we'll have our vino/snack break, then continue on to see the stunning views at Arch Rock. After taking in the scenery we'll go down to the beach and have lunch in an area protected by the cliffs.

This will be a full day of fun!  If you were with us last time you know just what I mean.

This hike is rated moderate soley for distance.  The terrain is essentially level making for an easy hike.

What To Bring:

Vino and cups! - bring the good stuff! And don't forget glasses, paper, plastic, or otherwise.

Lunch:  Plenty of food to share - Sharing the meal is what I love about our outings as it helps draw people together.

Snacks & Vino for our vino/snack break.

Hiking boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

2 liters of cold water (1/2 fill and refrigerate, then top w/ ice in the a.m.)

$5 activity fee


From Hwy 101, exit San Anselmo/Sir Francis Drake. Drive west

about 20 miles, to the junction with CA 1. Turn right and drive about 0.1 mile,

then turn left onto Bear Valley Road. Drive about 0.4 mile, then turn left at

the "seashore information" sign just past the red barn. Drive about 0.2 mile to

the parking lot at the end of the road. We'll meet at the trailhead at the west end of the parking lot.


As always, your sense of humour is required!

This is a combined event w/ other Meetup grps, so it will be a good opportunity to make new friends.

    do you have a rough end-time in mind? I'm really tempted but have a friend's birthday party to get back for.

      sounds good. I would be interested in sharing a zipcar for that or another outing or even a rental sometimes I get it for the entire weekend and it is actually cheaper.

      Sounds just like me! Zipcar pays for gas & insurance, so it makes more sense for me. Let me know about the 26th. Ps., I posted on there so I hope to hear from a couple of ppl.

    If anyone would like to carpool from Oakland, please let me know. I can take three or ride with someone and contribute some gas money.
