My first experience of Pt. Reyes was 30 years ago. I brought my family of five (from Cleveland, Ohio) back to see experience it, again. They all loved it, including our 19 to 25 year olds. The hiking , the lighthouse, the wildlife, the restaurants...More

When we were here it was during the middle of the week and it felt almost empty. It was great not to have to fight the crowds in the peak of the summer. Such a beautiful place.

This park has a little of it all when it comes to landscape on the ocean and wildlife. There are several different roads to take and hiking trails as well. Spent an entire afternoon there and probably could have stayed longer if I hadn't run...More

If you’re in the area, definitely worth the visit. We spent 2/3’s of a day; could easily have spent an entire day and evening. The roads are curvy and a bit lumpy at times, so plan for drives longer than they may seem on a...More

Arrive before 3 pm. It takes about an hour to drive to the lighthouse. Another hour is needed to walk to the lighthouse to take pictures. The lighthouse has limited hours and days open. So I figured that by the time I would arrive, I...More

I didn't encounter any on my hikes in May; the only plants I saw that were close enough to brush against were tall grasses and wildflowers.
