Bullpoint Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Tracing the eastern bluffs of Creamery Bay, the Bull Point Trail wanders through pasturelands—and the cows that graze them— to expansive views of Drakes Estero and Drakes Bay. The complex dynamic that has allowed Point Reyes and the surrounding landscapes of West Marin to remain relatively untouched by development comes into sharp focus along the Bull Point Trail. It’s a bovine nature walk, combining what makes Point Reyes desirable as open space (vistas, wildlife) with what has preserved those open spaces (agriculture). The meadowlands that surround the path are cropped not by tule elk or deer, as you might expect in a national park, but by roaming cattle that mark both pasture and trail with fragrant patties and study hikers with implacable patience. The scene is bucolic but provocative, affording the perfect opportunity to contemplate the benefits and pitfalls of ranching in the park."

"This level stroll on an old farm road heads across the open grasslands of the outer point to the shores of Drakes Estero. You’re likely to see many migratory birds in the estero, and seals and sea lions often gather on the beach at the trail’s end."
