OverviewMt. Wittenberg the highest) on the northern part of the Inverness Ridge along the California coast within the Point Reyes National Seashore. This is a wonderfully remote area with good hiking trails. Being on the coast the Inverness Ridge is thickly covered with pine forests and chaparral due to the abundance of moisture it recieves. The summit itself is a big flat plane with a radio range station on it. You can drive almost all the way to the top from the north or you can make a pleasant hike along Inverness Ridge from the south, or a few trails coming up from the west. Unlike more popular Mt. Wittenberg, Point Reyes Hill is not grown over with trees and has the best views on the Inverness Ridge. To the west is Point Reyes, Drakes Estuary and Drakes Bay. Tomales Bay and the numerous hills of west Marin County are to the east. Mt. Tamalpais is visible on the southeast horizon as well as Mt. St. Helena to the northeast.
For views out to Point Reyes go to the right by the fence surrounding the radio range station to the top of the Bucklin Trail. There is a bench where you can sit and enjoy the view. For views to the east go to the left side of the summit area.
