Point Reyes National Seashore - Tomales Point

Come join us for the views off the north end of Point Reyes National Seashore.

We will duplicate an earlier trek Edmond setup to this area.  We will meet at the Historic Pierce Point Ranch trailhead on the northern side of the park.  Please arrive between 9AM and 10AM, as to start at 10AM.  From my last trip to the park, it did take some time to arrive from the Bay Area (I am accounting for a 3 hour trip from Gilroy).  As an in & out trek, the trail will take us to the northern tip of the park at Tomales Bluff and back.  We pass the Tule Elk Reserve and observe at a distance Hog Island and Bird Rock.   We may witness bird migrations and the Tule Elk Rut.  Optionally, we will head to Mc Clures Beach upon returning to the trailhead (a mile extension).  We are looking at a 8-10 mile hike (relatively flat with little elevation gain).  With a sight seeing pace of 2mph, we are looking at a 5 hour trek - ending between 3 and 4 PM.  For those with time, we will gather afterwards for dinner and drinks.  If you are lost, confused or have questions, contact me at[masked]-5798.

    Great hike everyone. Hope you had a warm wrap up at the Farm House. FYI - I checked my map and Bodega Bay was due north of the point - I wonder if we were looking at Dillon Beach, not Bodega, or perhaps Lawson's landing

    I now have a car and maybe a guest (will let you know). Whoever still needs a ride is welcome to come to Downtown Berkeley Bart. I pick you up from there. I would have 2 spots for now. Maybe 3.

    Hi guys, my ride is full already!

    August 22, 2013

  • RZ

    Tom, will attend conditioned that I find a ride from SF. Help me with that. Guys if any can give me a ride would be appreciated. Thanks, Rafael.

  • JungHak L.

    I am leaving from Inner Sunset, SF. Google Map shows it takes 1 hour by car from there.

    If anyone can come to Shell Gas station on 7th Ave and Lincoln Way till 8:30AM on 24th, we can carpool together. I have three spots available as now.

    Let me know if you want to carpool. First come, first serve.

    August 21, 2013

    • Janelle

      I would like to be your third.

      August 22, 2013

    • Ariane

      If you have another spot available in your car, I can meet you at the meetup point you listed in the inner sunset at 8:30. Please let me know here or you can email me at [masked]

    I'd love to join, but I don't have a car. If anyone is leaving from San Francisco, I can take muni to any neighborhood to meet the carpool (I'm in the Castro/upper market area).
