8:00 AM at Point Reyes National Seashore, Bear Valley Visitor's Center
Explore the beautiful Point Reyes National Seashore of northern California with its thunderous breakers and rocky headlands by backpacking its coastal trails. Hike/camp Thurs Aug 11 and Fri 12 to avoid weekend crowds, spending at least one of those nights camped on the Pacific Ocean. Hike out on Aug 13. Exact route TBD but not expected to exceed 20 miles. Then spend an optional long weekend exploring other spectacular nearby trails and the city of San Francisco -- on your own or with the leader (who grew up in the area). You will make travel plans on your own (though people can choose to drive together) and leader will give a list of possible accommodations. For more information about Point Reyes: Before purchasing plane tickets for this trip, verify with leader that the trip is running (fewer than 4 sign-ups will cancel it).
