This spot is a must-see if you are looking for unspoiled, natural beauty. The drive to Point Reyes is a long and winding road, but in the end it is worth it. Take the Chimney Rock trail -- it is flat and less than two miles round trip, and it leads all the way to the end of the point,... More

There are several roads here, but once you're on Sir Francis Drake Highway, you're in the park. The Ranger station is a must stop to get maps (free) and talk to the Park Rangers about what to see. Glad I did, too - the Ranger told me about construction that would've slowed my day and suggested four must-sees. Talk to... More

Point Reyes Seashore National Park amazing views. The beaches are beautiful. Went during November cold and super windy. Walk to Lighthouse is a little extreme. Going down is easy coming up, not so much lol.

We visited recently on a day with no fog or wind. Drove our RV to North Beach and enjoyed lunch while watching the powerful surf. The ocean is so amazing here as Point Reyes sticks out into the ocean currents and produces huge waves, even on a calm day. I am amazed every time I visit. Make sure to stop... More

We drove on a very clear day to Point Reyes. The park is amazing, so much to see and do. We drove to the light house but unfortunately it was covered in fog so we did not get to see it. So check it out before you go.

Short walk from the parking lot to the lighthouse. Unfortunately the lighthouse was closed on Thursdays. Check the website for schedule. Still lots of beautiful scenery and points you can walk down to.

Enjoyed 3 days at Pt. Reyes Seashore visiting many of the beaches, doing lots of hiking, looking for elk, visiting one of the historical farms and driving every road possible in the park. It was a great time, despite the fog and wind. Found the elk herd with several HUGE bucks, one who seemed to be standing guard over his... More

We've seen many lighthouses on the west coast and this one is by far the most PICTURESQUE of them all!!! You DO have to walk about 15 minutes from the parking lot but it's paved...the road in is very windy but once you are there you will NOT be disappointed!!! ABSOLUTELY stunning view....and if you get there before they close... More

We drove all the way to the lighthouse, which was almost invisible in the fog. But just a few minutes drive back down the hill, the sun was glorious and we picnicked on the beach. If you want to tour the lighthouse, check the schedule; it's not always open and was closed the day we visited. The drive (we came... More
