To Drakes Head (4.5 miles): From Estero Trailhead, follow Estero Trail (2.5 miles) to reach an intersection with Sunset Beach Trail. Turn left no Estero Trail (0.7 miles) → right on Drakes Head Trail (1.3 miles) to reach Drakes Head. In August 2013, the signs along the last two miles were sketchy. The trail was visible but faint at many places. However, we never felt lost. The views of Limantour Spit from Drakes Head are just superb! One of the best views in bay area, California.
To Estero Trailhead (4.5 miles): Retrace your steps from Drakes Head back to Estero Trailhead.
Notes: All in all, a pleasant hike in overcast conditions. Almost all the trails are in the open, so avoid summers. Views from Drakes Head are superb! In August 2013, we ran into many clusters of cows along the trail. Along the hike, views of Home Bay, Drakes Estero and Estero de Limantour are great!
