Waterfalls- Alamere falls

Alamere Waterfalls ... One of the popular waterfalls in San Francisco Bay area. It flows in three cascades and empties into the ocean. How wonderful is that? The waterfalls can be reached by 10 miles (16 KM) round trip hike, part of it along the coast with beautiful views. One has to scramble down the cliffs with loose rocks to reach the bottom of the falls. It is a beach and hence it is a great picnic spot.

There are two lakes on the trailside and during springtime the whole place looks colorful with wildflowers blooming and the music of chirping birds soothes the soul!

In the picture is the first cascade during springtime!
