Another major outdoor destination has reopened in Northern California with Pointe Reyes National Seashore’s announcement that all roadways are once again open.
Although the park remained mostly open during the Covid-19 shelter-in-place mandate, all roadways and parking lots have been closed for over two months. Roadways that remain closed in the park include Mesa Road to the Palomarin Trailhead, Sir Francis Drake Blvd beyond Drakes Beach Road and Mount Vision Road.
While many of the roads and parking lots are open, there are still no services in the area. Visitors are encouraged to bring food and water on their trips, as well as wearing masks and practicing proper social distancing.
Anybody that wanted to visit the park had to hike or bike into the area, creating a major obstacle for visitors and leaving the park mostly empty. Point Reyes now joins a long list of other outdoor destinations that are now open, including a group of California State Parks, areas in NorCal’s National Forests and Lassen Volcanic National Park.
