This hike will be broken into 2 parts:
First we will meet at the parking lot for the Pt Reyes
Lighthouse, and hike out to the lighthouse.
Next we go to Chimney Rock and hike around the
trails there with those killer ocean views.
Chimney Rock caps the easternmost extension of the Point Reyes Peninsula where the Pacific Ocean meets Drakes Bay.
The headland is renowned for spring wildflowers, elephant seal colonies and seasonal whale watching. Clear days afford sweeping views of Drakes Beach, Drakes Estero, Limantour Beach and the Farallon Islands
The total mileage of these two hikes will be approximately 4-5 miles. The rating is easy to moderate, w/ sections being moderate to strenuous, depending on your condition.

Drinks - vino, beer, tea, whatever wets your whistle.
If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect. The vino is required to be a part of this hike... OK, not really, but it's always nice when the vino to hiker ratio is high!
