About Bear Valley Visitors Center in Point Reyes Station, California

Bear Valley Visitor Center is a great place to start for any visit to Point Reyes National Seashore. It’s located just outside the tiny town of Olema and about three miles from Point Reyes Station.

Most of the best beaches in Point Reyes are on a driving route that passes right by this friendly and educational stop. Hikers and backpackers setting out for remote beaches like Kelham, Arch Rock, and Wildcat Beach can start their treks from here. Several short nature trails also meander outside the visitor center.

Inside the barn-styled building they have a helpful staff and loads of books, maps, and exhibits about the area. The facility is ADA accessible and has restrooms and picnic areas with briquette-type BBQs.
