Alamere Falls Trail is a difficult hike in Point Reyes National Seashore near the San Francisco Bay area. The incredible Alamere Falls is located deep within the Phillip Burton Wilderness. Alamere Falls is a dramatic sight as it cascades over a ~30 foot tall cliff onto the south end of Wildcat Beach. Rangers at Point Reyes National Seashore recommends hiking to Wildcat Campground and, from there, hiking about a south on Wildcat Beach during a low tide. Many trails lead to Wildcat Campground, just check a map or talk with rangers. Nearly 490 different species have been spotted in and along the national seashore. For perspective, that’s more than 50 percent of species of birds in North America. So, don't forget to bring your binoculars. There is only backcountry camping available in Point Reyes, but there are plenty of other car friendly campground in the surrounding area.
