Free Adventure Hike in Point Reyes


Experience the beautiful coastal headlands of Point Reyes as you join the Mountain Travel Sobek team for a 7-mile hike along the Tomales Point Trail. This one-way-in and one-way-out trail passes through gently rolling hills, the remains of 19th-century farms, and a conservation area set aside to restore the Tule Elk population. At this time of year, you may even see elk in rut! Those who want to go the whole way can, or you can choose your own distance and enjoy the scenic bluffs. This free hike is great for anyone who wants to get out and about in the great outdoors with like-minded adventures in the Bay Area. So grab your boots and join us!

OPTIONAL EXTRA: Bioluminescence Kayak Tour!

We’ve reserved 12 spots with Blue Waters Kayaking for their popular 4-hour bioluminescence tour. This amazing evening tour gives you a rare chance to see blooms of tiny bioluminescent “dinoflagellates,” which emit short flashes of light when stirred by passing fish or paddles. On a dark night this light show is a thrill! We’ll meet for briefings at the Miller Park Boat Launch at 4:30pm on October 29th, 2016, and paddle around Tomales Bay, exploring the shoreline of Point Reyes, and enjoying the wildlife and incredible scenery until 8:30pm. We'll go rain or shine. The cost for this optional extra is $95 and space is limited. Contact John Baston at for further details and to sign up.
