The Sunday Traveler has posted about this beach in the past, but another day spent there yesterday brought another perspective when I hiked up a trail for higher vistas of this magnificent little corner of Marin County, right outside of San Francisco.
It was a late morning start in getting there, and fog that slipped in and out throughout the time we were there. Fog horns in the distance from the nearby Golden Gate Bridge only added magic to the day. The sun that managed to break through provided a nice little space heater to make it very comfortable. And at some points, the sun broke through splendidly. The day couldn’t decide if it was going to be fog or sun, so provided a rotating menu minute by minute.
It’s not a long or arduous hike from the beach towards the upper cliffs that overlook the beach and ocean.
Make a turn right before the tree, with a clearly marked trail that sends you up on your way.
Ok, this was worth pulling myself up out of the beach chair and taking this little walk.
Looking out into the open ocean…there was that fog again that never really cleared out there.
A tiny little beach definitely not accessible unless by a little skiff, and even then, the surf was incredible wild in spite of no wind. I stopped at the first elevation and turned around as the path got rocky and I had flip flops on. Next visit I’ll have the right shoes on to hike farther upwards. Back down I went.
A wonderful little addition to my local day trips
Local travel…it’s a good thing.
