Hike The Bear Valley to Arch Rock Views

  • Mar 30, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Plan:

This is a beautiful loop of about 10 miles covering the best of the varied landscape in Pt-Reyes. We'll take the Bear Valley trail from the Visitor Center out to a beautiful meadow where we'll have our vino/snack break, then continue on to see the stunning views at Arch Rock. After taking in the scenery we'll go down to the beach and have lunch in an area protected by the cliffs. We'll return via Coast and Glen Trails which will take us past a lake (dang I can't find it's name!), where we'll likely take a vino break. This will be a full day of fun! If you were there last time you know just what I mean.

This hike is rated moderate for distance, and is essentially level.

The hike is posted on several Meetup sites, so this will be a good opportunity to make new friends.

What To Bring:

Vino - bring the good stuff! And don't forget glasses, paper, plastic, or otherwise.

Lunch, and food to share. Sharing the meal is what I love about our outings as it helps draw people together.

Snacks for our vino/snack break.

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

$5 Admin fee - Thx!


From Hwy 101, exit San Anselmo/Sir Francis Drake. Drive west
about 20 miles, to the junction with CA 1. Turn right and drive about 0.1 mile,
then turn left onto Bear Valley Road. Drive about 0.4 mile, then turn left at
the "seashore information" sign just past the red barn. Drive about 0.2 mile to
the parking lot at the end of the road. We'll meet at the trailhead at the west end of the parking lot.

    It may sprinkle Sat - we hike no matter what. Did a hike this winter w/ on and off rain, and everyone loved it.
