Point Reyes National Seashore comprises over 100 square miles,
including 32,000 acres of coastal wilderness area. Estuaries,
windswept beaches, coastal scrub grasslands, salt and freshwater
marshes, and coniferous forests create a haven of 80 miles of
unspoiled and undeveloped coastline. Abundant recreational
opportunities include 147 miles of hiking trails, backcountry
campgrounds, and numerous beaches, including over 10 continuous
miles of unspoiled beach. Kayaking, biking, hiking, beachcombing,
surf fishing, seasonal whale and elephant seal watching, bird
watching and wildlife viewing are just a few of the activities
awaiting your visit. Additionally, you can explore geology, Coast
Miwok Indian culture or Lighthouse history by visiting the many
historic sites within the park. Located just an hour’s drive from
the San Francisco Bay Area, the Seashore is a great escape from a
busy city life.
Tomales Bay State Park is comprised of a 2,000-acre day-use park
which features four gently sloping, surf-free beaches, protected
from winds by Inverness Ridge, the backbone of the Point Reyes
Peninsula, as well as forests, fields, hills, meadows and marshes -
each with its own plant life, including varieties of trees, shrubs
and wildflowers. One of the finest remaining virgin groves of
Bishop pine in California is in the park's Jepson Memorial Grove.
Wildlife in the area includes foxes, raccoons, badgers, weasels,
chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, deer, bobcats, skunks, wood rats,
field mice, moles and other animals. There are also land and sea
