In light of the extraordinary circumstances, you may be wondering if it’s safe to hike Point Reyes, if the park is open, if lodging is open and if you will be able to get food. You’ll also want to know what our local businesses are doing to keep you, and all of us, safe. We’re publishing what we know on this page, and updating it as soon as new information comes in.
We want to protect service staff at businesses that remain open to serve the community with essential services. Please help us by maintaining social distance and hand hygiene when interacting with them. One way to help is to wear a mask and sanitize your hands before entering store buildings or picking up restaurant takeout. In these times, it is not weird or unfriendly or paranoid…it is how we show each other we care.
Is the park open?
Some paths in the park remain open, but all gated access points are closed. Also, check the current Shelter in Place Orders to see if you are able to drive to trails, as sometimes driving for exercise is prohibited.
You must keep two meters (six feet) of space between you and other people.
Bring your own hand sanitzer if you are visiting.
Bear Valley Visitor’s Center and bathrooms are closed. Marin Headlands Visitor Center, the Point Bonita Lighthouse, the Nike missile site and Muir Woods National Monument are also closed.

Yes. Our restaurants are doing takeout only, and a few of them have setup curbside takeout, so you don’t even need to come inside. Hours may be shortened and menus may be more limited than usual as they pare down to fewer menu items temporarily.
We’ll keep a list of currently open restaurants at the bottom of this page. Things are moving fast right now, and we’re trying to keep it as up to date as possible, but to be certain you can contact individual restaurants to confirm.
Is lodging available?
Most lodging businesses have closed for the duration of the Shelter in Place Order, but some are remaining open. Our innkeepers are doing a great job in making important adjustments to their cleaning and disinfecting protocols. Please refer to individual business websites in our Lodging Guide to find out what their policies are.
Thanks for your patience and understanding. When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming you.
As per the Shelter In Place Order, restaurants are takeout only, and some require you to call in your order and pay over the phone rather than in person to limit contact
