Drakes View Trail Professional Review and Guide

"These relatively little-used trails feature views that extend out over Drakes Bay and the Point Reyes headlands, and an exploreresque wilderness feel. This loop distinguishes itself in two ways. It feels remarkably remote, with few tracks left by fellow hikers but plenty by deer and other wild critters. But perhaps more significantly, the sweet, smoky scent left by the Vision Fire infuses the soil at trail’s end. The wildlands may be recovering—as evidenced by the young trees that sometimes grow so closely packed that nothing larger than a jackrabbit can squeeze between the narrow trunks—but the essence of the fire, like garlic in a savory sauce, is well incorporated in the landscape."
