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.
Masks are mandatory
We want to protect service staff at local businesses, our community members and visitors. Our local shops and restaurants are working hard to provide a safe environment. 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.
The county has mandated that wearing a mask is mandatory before entering buildings like restaurants, grocery and shops. It’s also mandatory in indoor common areas of lodging businesses.
Is the park open?
Point Reyes National Seashore is open, with some limitations. Please check the map link below to see which parks are open and under what conditions.
These trails remain closed: Mesa Road from the Commonweal entrance to Palomarin Trailhead, Chimney Rock Road, Mount Vision Road, South Beach Access Road, Sir Francis Drake Blvd. southwest of its junction with Drakes Beach Road.
You must keep two meters (six feet) of space between you and other people who aren’t part of your own household.
Bring a mask to wear if you need to be closer than 6 feet from others.
One person at a time will be allowed in restrooms.
Bear Valley loop trails will be limited to one way traffic.
Campgrounds, visitor centers, and picnic tables remain closed.
Water fountains are not available, so be sure to bring plenty of water with you.
Be sure to bring your own hand sanitzer.
Is food available?
Yes. Our restaurants are doing takeout, and some are able to welcome diners to outdoor seating. 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?
Under specific circumstances, yes. Please refer to individual business websites in our Lodging Guide to plan your overnight visit to Point Reyes and the surrounding areas.
