Tomales Point at Point Reyes National Seashore

Overview: This long, narrow, windswept peninsula of the Point Reyes National Seashore has just one trail with a culmination at Tomales Point. This wonderful hike, which is best enjoyed in late summer and early autumn, gives the hikers an opportunity to gaze upon seabirds, the ragged coastline, and herds of tule elk. Yes, tule elk! Every autumn the bulls get out on the rolling coastline at Tomales Point and they battle it out to for the females. Whether you come at this time of the year or not it is always a sight to see these elk. Tips: Weather is always unpredictable – no matter what the weatherman says – so be prepared and check the weather forecast for Point Reyes Station.

Difficulty: Moderate Distance: 10.2 miles/16.4 km Duration: Plan for Half a day [According to] Map
