Absolutely beautiful, great hiking, great views, well marked all beneath a beautiful blue sky. Animals around. Just be careful of those bikers!

The review that states the National seashore is decimated by dairy cows is simply out of the loop. There are multiple farms contained within the PRSNP, and this area was historically home to many farms, thanks to the Sierra Club, President Kennedy and California, the...More

Gorgeous Seashore with rolling acreage for hiking, biking, driving. Beautiful views over every hill. Grazing elk lend themselves to beautiful photos. Hike to a hill top or down to beach. I got a workout but enjoyed a day with high surf and spray. Mesmerizing

The beautiful parts of this park are indeed stunning, but steel yourself for vast stretches of land (almost 18,000 acres) completely decimated by NPS's wasting of taxpayer money by subsidizing cattle grazing. This was very disturbing.

This is the second time we "East-Coasters" have been to Point Reyes. The last time was 6 years ago on honeymoon and when we knew we were going to be in the San Francisco area again made sure that we revisited. Unlike our first trip...More

First problem is deciding where to go in this wonderful diverse park. Some great walks on long beaches. There's always the lighthouse beckoning, and the forests are magical. If you know nothing about the park, stop at the visitor center first to get advice.

I think I could spend days here; a few hours doesn't do it justice. We had a twisty turning drive down route 1; arrived at Point Reyes, already tired. A quick snack revived us and we had a good explore of Drake Beach. Very quiet,...More

Stopped here to see the lighthouse. Very beautiful. Unfortunately it was a bit foggy but it was still worth a visit.

Went here for an afternoon - luckily, it was a very warm (90 F) day in San Francisco, meaning out here it was really pleasant. We drove up to Tule Elk reserve first, and walked part of the trail up there, we were lucky as...More

We loved taking in the beauty of Point Reyes - the drive in was surprising with several dairy farms along the way but the view from the Lighthouse was worth the trip! And finding the Cypress Tree Tunnel along the way made for great photo...More

I didn't encounter any on my hikes in May; the only plants I saw that were close enough to brush against were tall grasses and wildflowers.

Most of the trails in Pt Reyes would be challenging perhaps for your mother. The trails to the ocean sights are more than .5 mile. Here are the exceptions: Limantour Beach- good drive up and walk way across lagoon for... More
