Description

Bass Lake is unofficially the best swimming hole at Point Reyes, but access can be challenging and there are no lifeguards - swim at your own risk.

Half-Day Hike: Hike in via the Coast Trail - South. Bass Lake is about three miles from the Palomarin Trailhead.

Family Friendly: Kids will love having their hike rewarded with a nice dip in the lake. What's more? There's a rope swing!
