This was a delightful nature enjoyment. I saw so much on this short trip, elk, deer, fox, dolphins... tide pools. You name it and we saw it. It was a great getaway from the Sacramento heat, and enjoy such beautiful scenery.

I just love going to point Reyes. One of my favorite spots in Marin. Not a spot for busy tourists who want to site see San Francisco. Tons of other activities in the park like horseback riding, wine tasting, gardening, cheese yours or tastings. The national park is more for hikes and to enjoy the natural beauty of our coast.

The Visitor Center is your first stop for area maps, general info, and check ins. Restrooms here and a good meeting place for groups. I bought a map that solved all my problems of the day. DO NOT miss Drake's Bay. You can walk the shoreline and wade in the ocean. DO NOT miss Bolinas Bay at low tide -... More

This beach appears uncrowded midweek and it is an uncluttered beach. The walk from the parking area to the beach was beautifully colorful and you can hear birds.

Point Reyes is a wonderful surprise. Driving from San Rafael by Lucas road, you will have wonderful experience when you face the huge pacific sea in front of you. Point Reyes was a point of observation during the second war, and today you can find the places where the soldiers observe if the Japaneses are coming.

I call it "DisapPoint Reyes National Seashore". It was cold, windy, socked in with fog and the view for the entire 45 minute drive out to the point where the lighthouse sits was marred by nasty, ugly cattle ranches the whole way. We could not even see the lighthouse through the heavy fog so we did not bother to hike... More

Beautiful views, excellent hiking paths, and glimpses of sea lions. I loved my time spent at the Point Reyes National Seashore.

Point Reyes National Seashore requires a commitment of time -- 4 hours minimum for a taste of the park but all day is better. The park is large, and the drive between the areas of interest takes much time. The first stop should be the visitor center to get a park map and information about the different areas. We chose...

I came here for one thing only...to see Point Reyes Light House. But to my surprise there were so many places to see! There's the Historic Ranches in Pierce Point Ranch, McClures Beach, Chimney Rock, Abbotts Lagoon, Tomales Point (a Tule Elk Reserve), Limantour Beach, Drakes Beach and so much more! 2nights stay were too short that I went back...
