Update for October 19: Multiple Public Health Authorities’ Advisories and Orders issued by the Marin County Health Department, San Francisco City and County Health Department, and San Mateo County Health Department continue to be in effect. We ask the public to please recreate safely and responsibly.
Visitors should read their local health orders and review the appropriate health order for the county they intend to visit (if different) before planning to come to the park.
The park will offer very limited services outside those that support visitor or resource protection. Park rangers remain on duty protecting the parks and normal rules and regulations continue to apply. To protect NPS and contractor employees very limited trash and restroom services exist. The NPS urges visitors to continue to practice social distancing and Leave No Trace principles, including pack-in and pack-out, to keep outdoor spaces safe.
We are working to increase access to the park in a phased approach. In order to comply with local and state health authorities, many sites, services and operations remain closed until further notice. The status of sites and facilities will be updated as health orders change. While some listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. You can follow the park's advisory Twitter account @GGNRANPSAlerts for the latest updates.
