Take a Walk with Elk

Large arrow left

At the north end of Point Reyes is the Tomales Point tule elk reserve. You can get there from San Francisco in about an hour and a half, but it's far more scenic (especially for a new arrival to the West Coast, like myself) to drive of Sir Francis Drake. The drive is about 2 hours that way, but you winding roads take you through forests, coastal scrub, and darling small towns.

At Tomales Point you'll find a 5 mile there-and-back trail that takes you very close to many, many (many!) tule elk.
