Point Reyes National Seashore juts into the Pacific Ocean just an hour's drive from San Francisco. Despite this proximity to a major metropolis, one can find themselves alone for hours on end in this majestic land. The park covers over 71,000 acres and ranges in elevation from sea level to over 1,400ft in the forested hills of Inverness Ridge.
Famous for its sweeping landscapes, plant and animal diversity, and fascinating human history, Point Reyes offers something for every interest. Eighty miles of coastline provide dramatic opportunities for landscape enthusiasts, while wildlife lovers can hope to see some of the 85 mammals that inhabit the park. Over 50% of North America's bird species have been documented here as well.
So pack your bags, grab your camera and visit one of the most spectacular parks in our nation.
