We drove from the Central Valley to Point Reyes to hike for a day in order to escape the heat inland. We were not disappointed. The area is so huge that even though the parking lot seemed very full, we never felt crowded on the trail. We hiked the 13.1 mile loop and were not disappointed. It was a wonderful day hike which we topped off with dinner in Point Reyes Station before the drive home.
We give this place 5 stars even though we could have used a few more benches placed strategically along the trail. No big deal, next time we'll just bring a little mat to sit on for lunch.
