Sandy S is on a distinguished road
Default Point Reyes: Chimney Rock and Lighthouse areas

Chimney Rock: I walked the main trail out to the point taking including most of the side trails as well as walking down to the boathouse and elephant seal overlook. Although there are no large displays many flowers are now
in bloom. The trail out to the point at Chimney Rock revealed over
thirty native wildflower species in bloom. Some of the most flowery
areas are right near the parking lot and the left fork of the main trail
just before the point. Some of the more abundant flowers were very nice
specimens of Footsteps of Spring, Douglas Iris, Wallflower, the white
form of Baby-blue-eyes, Checkerbloom, Field Chickweed or Spring Snow,
and California Buttercup.

Lighthouse Area: After leaving Chimney Rock if you make a left when you
go to the main road on your right are some nice specimens of Seep
Monkey flower. Continuing to the Lighthouse there is a good wildflower
area on the hillside area behind the bathrooms at Lighthouse parking
lot.
