I was in the region as a kid and remembered it being 'neat'. I hope you don't get dinged for posting a peak lower than 500 feet elevation, but even the little ones have their moments, too. Nice page!
Thanks! It is a "neat" area, in my opinion. One of the few wilderness coastlines in the Lower48. I hope I don't get dinged too. I figured it was close enough to 500 that I might squeeze it in. Plus, when you are on the summit, it feels a lot higher, since it climbing straight out of sea level.
I have been up there a few times. I was backpacking on the Lost Coast trail a while back when I encountered a guy with a full pack, a deep sea fishing pole and a surfboard strapped to his pack. He had spent a week on a wilderness surfing trip. Backpacking to go surfing...it does not get more California than that.
Sinkyone is a state park. Just to the north is the King Range National Conservation Area:
It is all worth a trip though. Of course, I am addicted to your neck of the woods. I can't get enough of the southwest.

I am too... and addicted to every neck of the woods. I would love to just bum around the NorCal coast, Oregon and Wash (and BC, etc) to climb peaks, hike canyons, camp, get lost for a summer. I huiess I'll just have to make do with all the great desert peaks and our high country. Sigh :)
Love Point Reyes! Can hike there for days.
It is a remarkable and singular place. Thanks for the support!
