This short trail leads through a marsh area, where cows often graze, to Kehoe Beach. Dogs on leash are permitted on this trail.

Kehoe Beach Trail leads .6 miles westward from Pierce Point Road to Kehoe Beach. This is a flat trail through Kehoe Marsh to the only beach in the park where pets are permitted. You may encounter cows on this trail. Brush rabbits, bobcats and mountain lions are occasionally sighted in this
area. Dogs, on leash, are permitted on the Kehoe Beach Trail. From May to October, dogs are not permitted south of the trailhead as this area is protected habitat for the endangered snow plover.

Kehoe Beach is the northern end of Point Reyes Beach, also known as Great Beach. This is a good place for exploration, dunes, beach, stream and cliffs compose the scenery. Walking northward you'll see the beginning of a sandstone cliff band that quickly changes to granite. This is the work of a reverse fault.

Directions: From Bear Valley Visitor Center, Travel north on Bear Valley Road to Inverness Park. Continue northward on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard (do not turn right). Follow this park road through Inverness as it begins to bear westward. Past Inverness the road forks. Take the right side of the fork, which is Pierce Point Road. Kehoe Beach Trail begins from the second trailhead along Pierce Point Road.
