Drake’s Estero Trail to Drake’s Head – The Long and Short of It

Susan Schlosser and Carolyn Longstreth will lead this classic Point Reyes foray through chaparral, pine forest, grassland and coastal bluff. We’ll discuss plant communities, search for early flowers and marvel at the spectacular views of Drake’s Estero.

It’s an 8.8-mile round trip to Drake’s Head but the route is out-and-back so participants can turn back whenever they wish. Drake’s Head is one of the most awesome overlooks in the Seashore, worth every step!

Meet at Drake’s Estero Trailhead, Point Reyes National Seashore,  located .5 mile off Sir Francis Drake Blvd.  Enter the Park at the hilltop west of Inverness, drive downhill past the Mt Vision Road turnoff, take the next left, at the sign for Drake’s Estero.
