Very beautiful scenery, but very windy and cold. I enjoyed the outing, but dress warmly. Good place to photograph. If you have mobility problems, probably not a great choice. Some locations don't require much walking, but most do. The lighthouse was closed this day due to high winds, so that is a consideration.

We have been enhjoying point reyes for almot 30 years. It has an old California quality that is just very hard to find as close as 1-2 hours of the SF bay area. It has ever-changin vistas of water, wildlife, historic agriculture, and uncrowded protected wilderness beaches. The staff at Bear Valley visitors center is awesome, helpful , and their docentlead hike so fun and educational. They also have a great intorductory slide show which can be viewed upon request which is very informative about thehistory of the park and the ecosystems.
We have a Trip advisor vacation rental listed here for Point

It's a bit of a drive from "civilization", but well worth every minute of it. Want a two mile hike to a beach only accessible to hikers? Want to drive out to a mile long sandy beach without the long walk? Want to see whales, elk, sea birds, and other wildlife (depending on time of day and time of year, of course)? Want to see the San Andreas Fault in action (where, during the 1906 earthquake, it moved a fence 20 feet from where it had been)? All of this, and much more, is here! Check out some of the other reviews for specific activities and trails.

During our first visit to the US in 2010 (remark: I had to check a date and 2010 was not available so I chose Aug 2012, our last stay in the US, as nothing will have changed since 2010 I still can recommend Point Reyes) we were lucky to drive out to Point Reyes National Seashore, although we first thought that due to the relatively bad weather it would not be worthwhile.
However, then we enjoyed the really beautiful location, the amazing trees being shaped strangely by the constant wind, the cliffs and the countryside you have to cross to reach the lighthouse area.
And also liked the drive from SF to Point Reyes passing locations like Stinson Beach.
A pretty rough area with lots of wildlife. We really liked it.

Woodlands, wildflower meadows, fern walls, elk herds, scores of bird species, bobcats and mountain lions on thousands of acres studded with great hiking trails, next to ocean, and all within an hour of San Francisco, this is Point Reyes National Seashore. I've been coming to this magical place since high school (back in the sixties). There are hikes for all levels. The Bear Valley Trail is four miles out to the ocean without much elevation change. The walk along Limantour Beach is exceptional, making it hard to believe that such a remote and wild place is so close to the city. The Sky Trail is more strenuous, but its not mountain climbing and gives great views of the whole park. You will not regret spending a day at this park.
