Point Reyes – Five Brooks Trail Head – Stewart, Coast, Old Out Road, Almea, Greenpicker, Stewart Loop

15 miles and nearly 2,700′ gain. Stewart is a “bike” trail, which seems to mean a gravel road when in Point Reyes’ south district. This route is 6.7 miles to Wildcat Camp / the seashore. If you were camping at Glen Camp or Wildcat I’d recommend checking out Old Out Road and Almea. Heading to Alamere Falls? Stewart > Alamea > Old Out > Coast would be interesting but it’s ~6.5 out (4.2 out from Palomarin).

Tough to recommend as a day trip unless your trying to do all the routes. Makes sense if your camping in the area, otherwise … There’s a reason this one isn’t in the day trip books.

Good if you want to have a long hike without crowds (as long as you start early enough to get off Stewart).

What to do? Thinking that 5 brooks th > Stewart > greenpicker > almea > old out > coast > lake ranch > ridge > stewart (14.4)  Or … lake ranch > bolema > olema valley a smidgen shorter)
