Peninsula Living: A hike to Point Bonita Lighthouse, Marin County, California
Last Sunday I cleared the calendar so my husband and I could take a needed day of R&R and enjoy the gorgeous spring weather.
A 45-minute drive took us from San Mateo County, through San Francisco, and across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County. We parked and began our hiking day heading up into the Marin Headlands, along a ridge, and down to Rodeo Valley and out to Point Bonita Lighthouse.
Because of the remote, somewhat hazardous location, the lighthouse is open for tours only a few short hours on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, and then only when winds are light. To reach the lighthouse, one walks through a tunnel blasted into the rock, then across a rickety bridge where only two people are allowed at a time.
We had a fine day of hiking in a gorgeous area and returned home energized and refreshed. Enjoy the snapshots!
