You're in another world here, a picture-perfect rural valley bordering on the Golden Gate National Parks and Point Reyes National Seashore. This pastoral landscape stretches for nine miles, its ribbon of Highway 1 unspooling between the slopes of Bolinas and Inverness Ridge, past grazing cattle and Victorian farmhouses. Here you have an opportunity to experience two national parks in one trip.

The redwood and fir forests from this valley provided lumber used to build San Francisco; logging transformed parts of the ridge into grassland and chaparral.
