Pt Reyes Lighthouse, Chimney Rock Hike & Potluck

  • Oct 26, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This hike will be broken into 2 parts:

First we will meet at the parking lot for the Pt Reyes

Lighthouse, and hike out to the lighthouse.

Next we go to Chimney Rock and hike around the

trails there with those killer ocean views.

Chimney Rock caps the easternmost extension of the Point Reyes Peninsula where the Pacific Ocean meets Drakes Bay.

The headland is renowned for spring wildflowers, elephant seal colonies and seasonal whale watching.  Clear days afford sweeping views of Drakes Beach, Drakes Estero, Limantour Beach and the Farallon Islands

The total mileage of these two hikes will be approximately 4-5 miles.  The rating is easy to moderate, w/ sections being moderate to strenuous, depending on your condition.

What To Bring:


Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

At least 1 liter of water (Fill your bladder/bottles 1/2 way and refrigerate the night before, then top off w/ ice in the a.m. and you'll have chilled water all day.

Vino/snacks for our pre-lunch break during the hike

Food and more food to share (fish, wraps, cutup sandwiches, meats/cheeses, crackers, dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, deserts - be creative!)

Drinks - vino, beer, tea, whatever wets your whistle.

If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect. The vino is required to be a part of this hike... OK, not really, but it's always nice when the vino to hiker ratio is high!

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

      No prob Chas, but just had two girls cancel on me (was bringing a pretty full ride!), so I might postpone to a harder hike like the one on the 2nd or 23rd. Point Reyes is nice, but too mild. That's where u take girls on a date, LOL! Either way I'll see u soon!

    Hey Chas, below someone said Point Reyes closed at the moment because of the federal government being closed. What's the likelihood the location will be changed? Alternative hike? Thanks!
