Point Reyes Hiking Trails

The Point Reyes area features a number of hiking trails totaling about 150 miles worth of distance. The trails can be combined to create a variety of different paths through the area. Hikers looking for simpler hikes that are an hour or less can choose from the Earthquake Trail, which is just over half a mile in length and paved, the Kule Loklo Trail, the McClures Beach Trail or the Woodpecker Trails, both just under a mile, the Limantour Spit Trail which is two miles, the Chimney Rock or Kehoe Beach Trail, both a little over a mile. If you are searching for a more challenging hike, your choices include Divide Meadow via the Bear Valley Trail, the Mt. Wittenberg Loop, the Mt. Wittenberg and Sky Camp Trails from Limantour Road, and the Coast Laguna Loop Trail, the Bolinas Ridge Trail and the Abbots Lagoon Trail, all of which take about one to three hours to hike. Advanced hikers will enjoy exploring the trails that take about three to six hours to complete including Sky Bear Valley Loop, the Arch Rock via Bear Valley, the Estero Trail to Drakes Head, the Tomales Point Trail, Bass Lake and Wildcat Beach and the Woodward Valley Loop. The average hiker hikes two miles per hour on the most challenging of paths, so allow for that amount of time when planning your hike.
