Words fail to convey the rugged beauty of
the Point Reyes National Seashore Park. Its coastal beaches
and sheltered coves; the scrub-covered slopes separating ocean
from forest; the diversity of the esteros and lagoons; the
rolling hills of its grasslands are the inspirations of
painters and photographers. Point Reyes entices all to hike,
bike, kayak its bays and lagoons, or explore on horseback or
car. Look for the whales, the elephant and harbor seals, white
fallow deer, Tule elk, and the nearly 400 species of birds.
Come to Point Reyes to gaze at the sunset from Limantour Beach
or the starry skies from atop Mount Vision.
