You need to go to this point of interest outside of SFO to clear your mind, reach some heights and get the thrill of zigzag roads, sharp, narrow roads all the way to Point Reyes Hiking Trails. One is not enough to explore all the...More

Excellent hike, especially when wind is low and weather is clear. Views of The Pacific and Tomales Bay. In May wonderful wild flowers. Tule Elk at very very close range. Trail is well maintained except for last two miles that leads to the point. 9...More

We spent 3 days hiking in Point Reyes National Seashore. Every trail was spectacular from the south to the north end. Get a good map from the Visitor's center. The trails have excellent trail heads with pit toilets. I was surprised how "pastoral" many of...More

I went on the Earthquake Trail near the visitor center. The trail could easily be traversed by a wheel chair. It is across​ the street from the visitor center.
