General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Trip Planning Images


The Phillip Burton Wilderness is located within the Point Reyes National Seashore. It is located about 40 miles north of San Francisco and is within about a 1-hour drive from the city. The most direct route to the Seashore and the wilderness from the north or south is to take California Highway 101 to the Sir Francis Drake Highway. Exit in Larkspur, CA. A 20-mile trip along Sir Francis Drake Highway leads to California Highway One in the town of Olema, CA. Follow Highway One north for a quarter-mile, turn left onto Bear Valley Road and travel one-half mile to the Seashore entrance.
