The Plan:

This is a beautiful loop of about 8 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.

This will be a full day of fun! If you were with us last time you know just what I mean.

This hike is rated moderate soley for distance. The terrain is essentially level making for an easy hike.

What To Bring:

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

Lunch: Plenty of food to share - Sharing the meal is what I love about our outings as it helps draw people together.

Snacks & Vino for our vino/snack break.
