Point Reyes National Seashore: Lighthouse and Chimney Rock Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Chimney Rock Trail is a short, easy hike that boasts one of the best wildflower displays on the coast and is the site of shipwrecks dating to 1585. The trail traces a bluff above 500-foot cliffs, providing spectacular coastline scenery.

Add a visit to the Point Reyes Lighthouse, full of history, great whale watching, and 310 steep steps, for additional exercise."

We had a 'light-hiker' in our group who didn't want to do anything too strenuous and we found both of these hikes extremely doable within an afternoon after setting up camp at the Olema Ranch Campground. Stunning views even on foggy days (of which this was one). There were also sealions viewable from the trails. Bring binoculars and telephoto lenses for optimum viewing.
