Rangers were very helpful. Make sure to stop by the visitors center. WE enjoyed walking on the beach and looking for birds.

Point Reyes seashore national Park is the best place I've ever hiked in my life! I advise all people that have ever lived to do this. The view to drake's estero from the ridge while we picnic'd was a once in a life time experience.

Beautiful Views, South beach is awesome. Light house is good. Too much traffic in weekends. They block traffic to light house when it is too busy.

It's hard to believe that an area this vast and wild can be such a short drive from San Francisco, but it is, and well worth the sidetrip from Rt. 1. This little patch of land is on the Pacific tectonic plate, which shifts a...More

Stunning beaches beautiful trails, great birding and wildlife spotting opportunities. Accessible wilderness. Quite a few places to stay plus camping and a hostel. Even driving there is a feast for the eyes.
