Marin County

Thanks to intense grassroots efforts some 40-years ago to protect Marin County?s remarkable coast, today?s visitors can walk almost 60 of the 72-mile coastline on a trail or beach, and visit State and National Parks, historic military structures, and diverse visitor centers along the way. Sandy coves, steep headlands, oak and evergreen forests and coastal sagelands abound. Congress and local governments preserved the coastline for the public by creating Point Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Their combined areas constitute one of our country?s great urban parklands: totaling 140,000 acres of natural coastal open space. [Richard Nichols]
