The best place to begin your tour of the National Seashore is at the Bear Valley Visitors Center at the park headquarters. As you turn into the entrance you will cross the San Andreas Fault where you can take a walk to see a dramatic demonstration a little later. At the visitors center you exhibits await to tell the stories of Point Reyes. The geography, plants, animals, marine life, history and beauty of the area unfold for you. Plan to take at least one half-hour for the center itself.
Morgan Horse Ranch
Just above the park center is the Morgan Horse Ranch, one of the few facilities in the park system that raises and trains Morgan horses for the national park system.
The Earthquake Trail is a 0.7 mile circuit stroll passing a rift exhibit from the 1908 San Francisco quake.
Miwok Indian Village
This replica village demonstrates the lifestyle of the Miwok Indian, the coastal California Indian tribe. Native Housing materials have been used to construct a typical dwelling surrounded by California coastal live oaks and redwoods.
