  • Forests and Woodlands
  • Grasslands


A strenuous, but amazing hike with few people along the Bolinas Ridge with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Stinson Beach and Point Reyes. 

  • Starting at Pantoll Ranger station, follow the Matt Davis trail until in intersects with the Coastal Trail. 
  • Take the Coastal Trail until you hit Ridgecrest Blvd, cross the road and enter the Bolinas Ridge Trail for a lengthy hike along the entire ridge to Olema. 
  • At the end of the trail, you can wave down the West Marin Stage Coach bus and have them pick you up there OR you can take the additional hike along the road for about 1-2 miles to Olema. 

Walking to Olema along the road is NOT advisable as there is no shoulder and lots of traffic.
