Alamere Falls Hike in Point Reyes 8+ miles

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 a moderate hike.

What to bring:

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing.

Snacks/vino for our pre-lunch break.  Energy bars are highly recommended.

Lunch (packed w/ carbs) and food to share (dried fruit/nuts, chips, dips, cookies, use your imagination - hopefully not too much sugar.)

At least 1 liter of water (2 is better)

Anything else you want to drink (wine, beer, etc.)

Sunscreen and a hat.

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

Directions to trailhead: 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 Palomarin trailhead. Link to destination where you can get a map to trailhead

    We'll probably get back to the cars at the Palomarin TH about 4:45- 5:30. Some of us will eat dinner in Stinson Beach and some will go directly home. So choose your car pool based on your preference. My car will be definitely doing dinner.

    Gloria, if you don't get into a car pool on the posting don't worry we usually sort all of that out a the 11th & P parking area.
