Point Reyes

Backpacking in Point Reyes National Seashore has always been one of our favorite activities when visiting northern California. This was our youngest sons (1yo) first backpacking trip ever! With this in mind we chose the shortest option of the back country campsites in Point Reyes.

Here we are at the trail head ready to hike the two miles out to Coast Camp.

Two miles is nothing for the Ken-Dawg, so he carried a small cooler and skimboard.

Our 1 year old hiked almost half way while our four year old carried all of his own gear except his sleeping bag.

The best thing about Point Reyes is that all the campgrounds are Backpack in only. So if you pack out on a weekday you get your own private beach.

We spent the evening enjoying the sunset and watching what we assumed was a Grey Whale spouting just of the shore. Unfortunately the photos did not turn out too well.

This was our fourth trip out to Point Reyes this Trip Report and more from the area can be found here.

One of my favorite camping trips. Though brave to bring a 1-year-old!
