Less than one hour's drive from San Francisco on the California coast, Point Reyes National Seashore
contains a 30 mile long peninsula, separated from the mainland by a narrow inlet (Tomales Bay) and a valley along the San Andreas Fault, and bordered by high cliffs and lengthy, unspoilt beaches. Numerous trails cross the partly wooded interior, while the coastline is easily accessible in plenty of places. Other landscapes in the preserve include peaks, marshes, streams, sand dunes and extensive grassland, much of which is still used for cattle ranching, an industry established here since the mid 19th century.
