Point Reyes January on 11/03/2008 16:33:36 MST Print View

Was wondering if there is any hiking fools that would like to tackle Point Reyes in January. Thinking of a start at the Palomarin trailhead, camping at Wildcat then hiking out the next day to the ranger station. 14 miles total. Anyone game????

if you are interested, check out an old thread about a three-day solo trip i did out to point reyes. a good combo of trail, beach, and road walking, in a big loop. i had a great time.

Jay,
I'd like to join you. For years I did a 3 day, 2 night New Years loop from Bear Valley to Sky Camp, Glen Camp and back to BV. It was a blast. We'd bring a tin of Spam and fry it up for a New Years Eve treat. Let me know if you've got an open berth.

Guys no date is in concrete yet, just throwing this out there to see who is interested. Maybe the second or third week of January would work. If anyone needs a solid date that is no problem. On a side note I did this trip a few years ago and it is a relatively easy hike. Some elevation gain coming out of the camp heading to the Bear Valley Ranger/Visitor Center. Yes there would be need of a car at each trailhead for the shuttle. The two trailheads are about 20-30 minutes drive time apart from one another.

Hey Ken,
I only live 45 minutes from there so as long as the dates are good for me, I'll be in.

If the dates are right I would be in too. I did an overnight trip to Wildcat from Palomarin last month. It's a great trip.

I was chattin with Ken thru PM's. I'd sign-on with you guys, Josh has been reminding me about it every time we talk, but I just agreed to a work project that full week, both weekends. UGH! An outing the weekend of the 24th would be a great treat after this beast of a project.

If you guys are flexible, keep the 24th in mind. If not, there's plenty of trips to come.

cheers,
-Michael
