This is a panoramic hike along a sublime strip of land between the Paci?c Ocean and picturesque Tomales Bay. As a bonus, hikers get the unique opportunity to see herds of tule elk as you walk through the Tule Elk Reserve on your way to the point. Point Reyes National Seashore is a 71,000-acre Eden steeped in history beginning with the geological forces that shaped the land millions of years ago. Movement of the tectonic plates along the San Andreas Fault has shifted the Point Reyes Peninsula northward from the southernmost Sierra Nevada in the Tehachapi Mountains 350 miles south. The most recent dramatic surge occurred during the 1906 earthquake.
