This is a beginner backpacking trip for those who want to learn how to backpack or get back into backpacking.
We are camping at Wildcat Camp in Point Reyes. The campground is 6.3 miles from the Bear Valley visitor center. It is very close to Alamere Falls so we'll be able to see the falls on this trip as well. We will be hiking quite a bit on this trip to see the various beaches and lakes in the area. Bring your swimsuits!
Friday: Arrive at Bear Valley visitor center and hike to campsite (6.3 miles, about 3 hours). Set up camp and secure belongings. Have dinner at campsite. Hike to Kelham beach and enjoy the sunset at the beach. We can also have a fire on the beach. Hike back to camp under starlight. Enjoy the peaceful evening with stargazing and conversations.
Saturday: Breakfast at camp and secure belongings. Hike to Alamere Falls for photos and lunch. Hike to and swim in Bass Lake. Hike back to Wildcat beach for more beach time. Return to camp, have dinner, rest and relax with our camp mates. Night hike optional.
Sunday: Breakfast at camp and pack up. Hike back to Bear Valley visitor center. Go for a picnic and swimming at Stinson Beach.
