Notes: This is an 'adventure hike' that may be done only in minus low tide conditions. It is described in the book Point Reyes - Secret Places & Magic Moments by Phil Arnot (1993, 224 pages). The route takes you through Elephant Rock, Elephant Cave, Ribbon Falls and Keyhole. About half of it was on rocky beaches and half on quiet sandy beaches. We had to wade in water using a hiking pole on three occasions. At one point, we were waist deep in water. The hike requires careful planning and execution. Phil's book has details. In May 2011, we joined a hike organized by Paul Grammens for the group NorthBayHikes. According to Paul, very few days in an entire year allow this hike to be possible. Only a few of these days fall on weekends, so very few attempt this hike. Tide Tables for Point Reyes, CA.
