DIRECTIONS:
In Google maps enter “Mesa Rd, Point Reyes Station”, or ““37°56'3.27"N, 122°44'50.79"W”, and the parking is at the end of this road (that becomes a dirt road).
From US 101 in Marin County, exit CA 1/Mill Valley/Stinson Beach. Essentially you go first to Stinson Beach and continue on CA 1. Drive on Shoreline Highway to the junction with Almonte, about 1 mile. Turn left on CA 1 and drive about 2.5 miles to the junction with Panoramic. Continue straight on CA 1 about 13 miles to an unsigned junction with Olema-Bolinas Road (just past Bolinas Marsh). Turn left. Drive 0.1 mile to a T intersection with Olema-Bolinas Road, turn left, drive about 1 mile to the junction with Horseshoe Hill Road, and again, turn left. Drive to the next stop sign, then turn right onto Mesa Road. Drive about 4 miles, then continue the last 1 mile on the dirt road to the trailhead at the end of the road. If you have a high-clearance vehicle, take it. The road isn't terrible, but can be washed out and bumpy.
For GPSers, trailhead is at Latitude 37°56'3.27"N, Longitude 122°44'50.79"W as you can guess.
