Pt. Reyes Updates

Pt. Reyes National Seashore has posted the following updates today (5/24/19):

  • Drakes Beach Road and Drakes Beach have re-opened. Earlier this week 200 elephant seals arrived on the beach in front of the Ken Patrick Visitor Center, making it unsafe for visitors and elephant seals to share the beach. There are fewer seals on the beach now and park staff and volunteers will be onsite this weekend to ensure everyone’s safety. Please be sure to stay at least 25 ft. away from elephant seals and remember that no dogs are allowed on Drakes Beach. Please monitor the park’s social media and website for updates.
  • Drakes Beach Bookstore and Ken Patrick Visitor Center will be open this holiday weekend (Saturday, Sunday, and Monday) from 10am – 4:30pm.
  • Point Reyes Beach between the North Beach parking lot and the mouth of Abbotts Lagoon is closed due to Snowy Plovers nesting.
  • Shuttle service to lighthouse and Chimney Rock is cancelled in May.
