Pt. Reyes: Five Brooks -> Alamere Falls, 15ish miles, brisk paced

  • Jun 30, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • Five Brooks Trail Head Pt. Reyes National Seashore

Meet at the Five Brooks trailhead in Pt. Reyes for a 9:00 DEPARTURE for a brisk paced, 15ish mile hike.

The route still being finalized, but we'll go to Wildcat Camp, and walk the beach to Alamere Falls.

Note: we will DEPART at 9:00.

Note: The last time I was there, the trail from the beach at Alamere Falls was a bit of a scramble, and had some poison oak. 

As always, all are welcome, but please be prepared for the pace, distance and climbing.

Fine print on my fast paced hikes: Our pace while moving usually averages around 2 3/4 mph. We stop for lunch, and usually take another short break or two. We regroup at trail junctions, but take few rest stops. If you like to take frequent breaks, or if you need to stop and rest on climbs, these hikes probably aren't for you. On the other hand, if you like hiking lots of hilly miles at a brisk pace, while taking in some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, please join us. If you aren’t sure you can keep up, but want to try it, please do. We won't abandon you. But, out of courtesy to the rest of the group, please bring a map, and volunteer to take a short cut if you find are struggling to keep up.
