Enjoy this tour on your drive to the Point Reyes Lighthouse! This is the story of a magnificent park: The Point Reyes National Seashore and its odd relationship with the dairy and beef ranches that are part of it. “Cows in a park?” you might ask? Well, yes. They were here long before the park was formed and are a vital part of present-day Point Reyes. The farmers who can recall traditional rural life in West Marin are a treasure to this community. So, we’ve gathered their memories to help explain how agriculture evolved here and the role it plays today in protecting the cultural and natural resources of this area. This driving audio tour takes you on a 21-mile journey from Point Reyes National Seashore headquarters to the Point Reyes Lighthouse through some of the most beautiful natural and pastoral landscapes in the world. Using the Voicemap app, the tour uses your location to trigger each part of our story automatically. So you can just relax and enjoy the view.
