  • It's kind of a trek out Sir Francis Drake Blvd, through suburb after affluent suburb. But it's worthwhile. There's a conveniently located picnic area you can drive into. It puts you right at a gorgeous creek with a view of strong, tall redwoods. You could drive many more miles and not be in a place this beautiful.
  • One of my absolute favorite places to visit when I'm in the Bay Area. The weather is practically always amazing except in the winter. Even cloudy summer days can take your breath away. Nothing like walking through enormous Redwoods to remind you how hard we have to work to protect this beautiful planet.
  • Beautiful state park in the redwoods. I love visiting here to hang out for the day or to camp during quieter months. There are bbqs and picnic tables. Great proximity to the coast.
  • Beautiful park tucked away in West Marin. Amazing spot for camping. Day trips to Point Reyes or Stinson Beach or a quick drive to Point Reyes station to coffee at the Bovine Bakery.
  • great layout... trail and creek... everybody seems happy to be camping in the redwoods
