This is a really large " park" so plan well. We enjoyed hiking to lighthouse, but the fog made views limited. We also found the Earthquake Trail pretty cool.

The gorgeous views of the ocean and coastline are worth the winding drive out to the Lighthouse. Due to limited time, we did not walk down the stairs to the actual lighthouse but we did venture to the point above and enjoyed the view! Be warned it is very windy!

Wow!! This national seashore is take-your-breath-away amazing! My brother is from San Francisco and he knew all the interesting and sometimes out of the way places to take us, and this was no exception. It was just incredible. Not only do you feel like you're in a different country, but you feel like you are on the edge of the... More

OK. I must admit. As a person from back east, hearing that I am now leaving the Continental Plate, crossing the San Adreas Fault and moving onto the Pacific Plate I felt my heart beat a little faster. Could this be the day when the "Big One" hits? Could I be an active witness as a chunk of California floats... More

Wherever we went on this massive protected seashore there was something else beautiful to see. From the magnificent coastline views, to the herds of Tule Elk emerging from the fog, to the fat and happy sea lions and dairy cows, this place is scenic done right. There are many hiking trails, but be advised that many are quite steep. The... More

Visited Point Reyes in early March 2014. Was blown away by the scenery. Nothing but ocean and hills for miles. Really makes you appreciate nature. We saw the Elephant seals resting on the beach. There were dozens of them with some making loud barking noises. Some of them were huge. If you're in the San Francisco area and want to... More

This whole region of California, including the National Seashore part is a beautiful drive and wherever you choose to stop is a beautiful destination. Full of birds and butterflies, flowers, trees, water and different types of plants and trees - including some relatively old redwoods.

Pt. Reyes is like heaven after escaping the urban Bay Area. The trip through the Redwoods on the winding road before seeing the park is beyond description. Go down to the beach and look (I MEAN REALLY LOOK CLOSELY) at the sand. I could stay there forever.
