Beautiful views and wildlife

Beautiful anytime of year (though fog may limit views at times); the spring wildflowers and green hills in late winter and spring are gorgeous.

Beautiful water, California Cypress everywhere, spectacular environment for birds and birds-of-prey. One hour and one half hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, one drives through forests, valleys and shoreline beauty on Highway 1. Visit Inverness, Marshall, Point Reyes, Olema, all lovely villages with old-style restaurants and accommodations. It's an all day trip and a great day of stopping and... More

Great travels through the state park. Nature at its best. Saw deer, elk and lots of cows. The view of the bay and the point with the spectacular ocean nearby. Telling everyone that this is truly a gem. Great hiking spots and beautiful flowers this time of the year. Will return.

This is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been to and it is absolutely gorgeous! It is completely green and the view of the ocean is spectacular!

Very good to reach after a long drive - free and Plenty of parking at the ranch. The hike is NOT easy for families with smaller kids or elderly adults. Going to tomales point and returning will take you easily 5 hours including some water and observation rests. You have several smaller climbs and can observe the elks. Highly recommended!

You can ride at ease all along the area, couple nice places to visit , hiking,biking and driving your vehicle up and all along the Bay Area , lots of green and beautiful houses all around the bay. Go camping or go for a day's adventure it all adds up to Fun Fun Fun.

Everywhere you look is amazing. There are elk, birds of prey, and lots more amazing things to see from way up high. Don't forget your sunscreen - just because it's foggy and breezy doesn't mean you can't get burned (we did).

Beautiful approach to Hearts Desire beach. Small but lively and beautiful beach. Small walking trails that suited our age!
