PT. REYES 
MUDDY HOLLOW

Trail Description:
Contrary to it's name, Muddy Hollow is not really muddy, but is an archetypal Pt. Reyes grassland trail that covers a great deal of what one might encounter on most inland hikes. There are a variety of flowers, trees, and even one stream combined with ocean views as you ascend the latter part of the trail. Due to it's proximity to the ocean, you can expect the vegetation to stay green and temperatures mild most of the year.
