Directions to Park Destinations

Directions to points of interest and trailheads within Point Reyes National Seashore from the Bear Valley Visitor Center
For directions on how to get to the Bear Valley Visitor Center, visit our Directions page. Once at the Bear Valley Visitor Center, there are four main roads within Point Reyes National Seashore leading to various points of interest and trailheads: Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, Limantour Road, Pierce Point Road and Highway 1. The locations listed below are followed by the road (in parentheses) visitors need to drive to get to the destination. Click on a destination name below to get directions to that location.

Tip: For destinations along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, visitors can essentially follow road signs for "Lighthouse" until they see a sign indicating their destination.

NOTE: On weekends and holidays from late December through mid-April, when visitation to the Point Reyes Lighthouse and Chimney Rock areas is heavy, visitors may be required to ride a shuttle bus from Drakes Beach to the Lighthouse and Chimney Rock areas. Due to the Lighthouse Restoration Project, the shuttle bus will not be stopping in the lighthouse area for the majority of the 2018–2019 shuttle bus season.
