Starting at the Palomarin Trailhead, near Bolinas, the 5.5-mile Coastal Trail in California’s Point Reyes National Seashore features views of the Pacific (watch for whales), a swimming spot in Bass Lake (watch for nudists), and the holy-crap 30-foot-tall Alamere Falls (just watch). Overnight at the oceanside Wildcat Camp ($15 per night;, about five miles from the trailhead and one mile from the falls.
