Phantom Falls is the tallest waterfall on Californias coast, dropping 160 ft. off the huge cliffs onto the beach in Pt. Reyes National Seashore. The conditions must be perfect to see it however. It is only accessible at low tide. Also, it only flows after there has been a lot of rain, and will be just trickling or non-existent otherwise (hence the name: Phantom Falls). Phantom Falls is on an unnamed and unmarked little stream; thus, it needs plenty of rain to be flowing. When I was here in December, there had not been enough recent rain, and it was only trickling. But I will be sure to return in the future. When it is flowing, it is quite a sight to see because it is so tall.
