Bayview Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike descends the slope of Inverness Ridge offering great views to the west, then enters a lush riparian corridor. Trail can be wet in winter."
--Don & Kay Martin, Hiking Marin: 141 Great Hikes in Marin County (Marin Press LLC).
"Meander through dense young bishop pines and fragrant ceanothus bushes in the regenerating burn area. Take in coastal views and descend to a lush riparian environment, with excellent birdwatching opportunities. Across Limantour Road, you’ll pass the hostel and the Environmental Ed Center and return to the ridgetop on the Laguna Trail."
--Jessica Lage, Point Reyes: The Complete Guide to the National Seashore and Surrounding Area (Wilderness Press).
This was a fun and relatively easy trail. You descend towards the west (with a few views of Drakes Bay) and then connect with a road that goes to the hostel and education center. Walking along the road was a bit of a bummer, especially bc it was really hot that day. You then get on Laguna Trail and head east or back up the ridge. We think that we saw a bobcat on the start of the Laguna trail near the hostel.
All in all, I enjoyed this trail very much. Don't miss out on checking out Limantour Beach at the end of the road- it is amazing!
