From the flashing traffic light in the town of Olema (Highway 1 at Sir Francis Drake Boulevard), go north on Highway 1 for 200 yards. Turn left on Bear Valley Road, go 1.5 miles to the second possible left turn (Limantour Road), go 5.5 miles to first crossroad (at the bottom of a hill) and turn left. The hostel is on your left.
Free parking is available at the hostel on a first-come first-served basis.
USING PUBLIC TRANSIT:
It is not easy to get to the hostel by public transportation, as the nearest bus stop is 7 miles from the hostel. If you decide to travel by bus, you must have a reservation so we know when to expect you.
From San Francisco, take Golden Gate Transit to the San Rafael Transit Center, then take the West Marin Stagecoach to the Bear Valley Visitor Center in Point Reyes National Seashore. From the visitor center, it is a 7-mile hike to the hostel (there are no local taxis).
The visitor center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pack a trail map and have a plan if the bus you take arrives when the visitor center is closed. Be sure to buy all of the food you will need for your stay before you get on the bus. Olema is your closest stop and it does not have a grocery store.
FROM THE AIRPORT:
The hostel is about 50 miles north of SFO. Take Highway 101 north through San Francisco and across the Golden Gate Bridge. Continue north on Hwy 101 to the Sir Francis Drake Boulevard exit. Take a left, and follow Sir Francis Drake west to Olema/Hwy 1. Take a right on Hwy 1 (north), and go north on Highway 1 for 200 yards. Turn left on Bear Valley Road, go 1.5 miles to the second possible left turn (Limantour Road), go 5.5 miles to first crossroad (at the bottom of a hill) and turn left. The hostel is on your left.
