Alamere Falls: Ocean Views, Fern Grove, Waterfalls, Potluck on the Beach

  • This location is shown only to members

This place is seriously gorgeous and we had a blast last time we were there.

Alamere Falls is a little known California landmark, and this is an excellent hike along the California Coast Trail starting from the Palomarin trailhead near Bolinas. It is incredibly pretty with amazing ocean views and lush vegetation.

This is an 8-9 mile easy to moderate hike, w/ little elevation gain and  a somewhat challenging scramble down to the beach (Two of us always help everyone get through the scramble).

This is a combined event w/ other Meetup Grps and a good opportunity to make new friends.

What to bring:


Vino and cups

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

Food, food, food!  Wraps, cut up sandwiches, meats/cheeses/breads/crackers, dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips,  use your imagination.

At least 1 liter of water (2 is better)

Anything else you want to drink (vino, beer, juice, iced tea, etc.)

$5 activity fee

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!


Directions to trailhead:

GPS [masked],[masked]

Take Hwy #101 to San Rafael, and take the Sir Francis Drake Blvd. exit. Drive west 20 miles to Olema, then drive south on Hwy #1 for 9.1 miles to Bolinas Rd. (unsigned). Turn right and drive 1.8 miles to Mesa Rd. Turn right and drive 4.7 miles to parking lot and Palomarin trailhead.

Game Plan:

Beautiful hike overlooking the ocean, through a forest and a fern grove,  then lunch on the beach at the bottom of the falls!

Plan on spending the day.

For those who want we can go grab a beer and some tacos afterwards.

      I live in Palo Alto and would appreciate if I could ride with someone. I could meet somewhere on the Peninsula on your drive up from Sunnyvale.

    If there are enough of us who need a ride we could split a zipcar, I can get one in my neighborhood, I live in the Castro area SF.
