Point Reyes National Seashore is located about an hour’s drive north from the San Francisco Bay area. The Seashore offers spectacular hiking and biking trails through dense forests and grasslands and along expansive sand beaches and coastline. There are also scenic drives to vistas with beautiful views of the rugged northern California coast. The Seashore has a visitor center, several historic sites – including the Point Reyes Lighthouse, 150 miles of hiking/biking trails, several beaches, amazing wildlife viewing and camping in four remote/primitive tent-only campgrounds (Sky Camp, Coast Camp, Glen Camp and Wildcat Camp).
Point Reyes National Seashore Glen Camp has 12 primitive tent-only (walk-in) campsites and 3 group sites. Glen Camp is located in a wooded valley protected from ocean breezes. The hike to the campground is through a dense forest. The easiest approach is 4.5 miles via Bear Valley Trail (Five Brooks Trailhead) and Glen Trail. To access Glen Camp by bicycle, start at the Five Brooks Trailhead, follow the Stewart Trail to the Glen Trail, then north to the Glen Camp Loop, and finish by descending to Glen Camp.
