We will meet at the Palomarin Trailhead, take Coast Trail past Bass Lake to Ocean Loop to Wildcat Camp, at Wildcat Camp we will walk onto the beach and go south on the beach to Alamere Falls for our LUNCH SPOT.

After lunch we scramble up the cliff and return via unmaintained (but very busy) trail to Coast Trail and return via Coast Trail to the parking lot.

The way back will include scrambling up a cliff, everybody did fine on the hike I did there a few weeks ago, however if you have any doubt check out the picture. Here is the link:
