About the event

Join me on this shaded hike to three or four beaches on the west side of Tomales Bay in Tomales Bay State Park. This hike follows the Johnstone trail from the SP parking lot off of Camino Del Mar, just past Inverness to Hearts Desire Beach and back. The out and back hike is 9.5 miles with 1420 ft of elevation on compressed soil with few rocks, gradual inclines, with a few moderately overgrown sections. After visiting shell beach we pass through a rare bishop pine micro climate to reach pebble and hearts desire beaches. Lunch at vista point overlooking hearts desire and Indian beaches with tables and flush toilets. We reverse the Johnstone trail to return. Leave from the Berger at 8:30 AM. Bring lunch, water and poles as you see fit. I recommend long pants on this shaded, slightly overgrown hike. $7.00 parking or state pass, drive time 1 hr. 20 min.  Hike Leader: Frank Galli 763-360-975
