We went there mainly for the lighthouse. The visit to the lighthouse was not a great experience, but the area near the national seashore itself is nice. The trail was very pleasant although we went only halfway. We also had a picnic in the picnic area. The weather there was perfect and the picnic experience was great.

Pt. Reyes Nat'l Seashore boasts beautiful coastline, hiking trails, beaches, and wildlife. On our trip we saw humpback whales from the lighthouse. We enjoyed seeing Tule elk, elephant seals, deer, and birds from other parts of the park. The rangers at the visitor centers are helpful in pointing out points of interest. For the beaches, Mc Clure beach in the... More

I live here....it's great. The park headquarters is helpful, the trails are well marked, there is lots of variety - beach, forest, meadow, flat or hilly, hard or easy, camping or not.

As a family, we love these type of natural sites so take that with a grain of salt as you read the review! The ride out to the Light House was a long and bumpy one but the windswept views we found when we reached our destination made it worth the ride. It was incredibly windy the day we were... More

I am one of the luckiest people in the world to live in the SF Bay Area. Point Reyes National Seashore is a wonderful place. We go there to find birds and to walk around nature. We are thankful to the people who owned this land for agreeing to make it a park. Otherwise, it would have been developed into... More

Probably need to explore it a bit more based on other reviews, but was disappointed with my camp site. I went with the family on an overnight backpacking excursion to Glen camp. I made reservations a few months prior and based on pictures etc. I thought it would be great. It's a 4-5 mile hike out from parking lot along... More

We explored the lighthouse, South beach and North beach, hiked to see the seal lions and out to Chimney rock. An amazing beautiful day - all free. There are no services in the park so plan for that!

Point Reyes was a great hiking experience. We went on a Wednesday morning. The Rangers were helpful and nice. We first took the McClures beach trail (.3 one way) to an amazing coastline. Then we took the tomales point trail. It is about 3 miles of maintained trail and then 2 more miles of no longer officially maintained, but well... More

We slept 3 days in coast camp (site001). It was amazing. So peacefull and quiet. We fell asleep with the sounds of waves crashing on the shore. Plenty of stars. We hiked the coast trail for 20 miles. We highly recommend it.
