Hit the Trail!

Hiking the Magical Terrain of Point Reyes

The greater Point Reyes area offers you trails in all kinds of environments: sea coast, open meadows, chaparral, dense woodland and pasture lands. All kinds of terrain are here too: gentle walks, switchback trails through the canyons, and trails along the beachside cliffs. It is extraordinary for such a small area to encompass such a richly varied landscape. You can even traverse all of these environments on the same hike in Point Reyes.

The choices and combinations are many. I do not attempt a complete chronicling here of all the hiking trails in the Point Reyes area, only those that I think are especially suited for a particular age or mode of getting around. Truth to tell: every one of the trails in Point Reyes is beautiful and fascinating if you only have your eves open.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE
& REST STOP TRAILS

Because Point Reyes is considered a wilderness park, it has been spared many of the so-called "improvements" of more developed parks in he country. However, this sometimes presents difficulties for the elderly or people in wheelchairs, so my first collection of trails will be for them.
