A few weeks ago Alex and I were on a hiking kick and decided to head out to Tomales Bay to hike to the point. Tomales Bay is located north of San Francisco and offers a ton of different hikes and activities, which is perfect for sharing for #WeekendWanderlust. To reach Tomales Bay we drove these awesome country roads for about an hour and ended up on Highway 1, passing through the town of Point Reyes.
Between Point Reyes and Tomales Bay you can hike, kayak, taste awesome cheese and of course get some oysters; we definitely need to head back since all we did was hike. The hike was 4.8miles to the point and then of course you had to head back and is famous for the elk that hang out on the cliffs.
It was a fun afternoon even though by mile 4 I was over it as the last .8 mile was through sand and scraggly bushes that scraped up my entire legs. I would highly recommend wearing pants and tennis shoes, also bring a jacket and sunscreen as the weather can change rapidly on the coast.
Tomales Bay is a perfect afternoon away. The hike is quite popular so it can be a little crowded but we were lucky and had it practically to ourselves, plus seeing the elk was awesome! I would highly suggest coming out here for a weekend escape!
