4. Point Reyes National SeashoreGet More Info
It might not be a national park, per se, but this protected stretch of California coast will beat your average left coast beach trip. “This year is great for wildflowers in the midsection of California, all along the coast,” says Behr. Hiking (there are 150 miles of trails to explore) is always a draw at Point Reyes—The Earthquake Trail explores the San Andreas Fault Zone, for example. But the wildflowers promise to be overwhelming (in a good way) this year; they’re the real draw. Chimney Rock Trail, overlooking Drakes Bay and the Pacific, is one of your best bets.
