Hike Point Reyes

Point Reyes
, Point Reyes Station
Contact:Will Spargur (cspargur87@gmail.com)


We will be meeting in front of the Bear Valley Visitor Center at Point Reyes on Saturday, July 10, at 10 AM. The hike will start with an easy warm up down Bear Valley Trail to the Ocean. We will then turn North and hike along the Ocean to Sculptured Beach where we will stop for lunch. If you have never been there - bring a camera. Sculptured Beach has the most beautiful ocean and cliff views in California.

Once we're all rested we will begin a 1,400 foot ascent to Mount Wittenberg for panoramic views of Drakes Bay. Then it is an easy downhill hike back to the visitor's center. There's some cozy traditional pubs in nearby Olema where we can relax and fill up before heading home.

This hike is approximately 11 miles with an elevation change of 1,400 feet. We will be taking it easy with plenty of rests to enjoy the trip. Total hike time is about 5 hours. Carpools are available from Berkeley, Oakland and SF. Let me know if you need a ride so we can arrange a pickup. If you are coming from another location and can offer a carpool let me know.
