Cypress Tree Tunnel

Cypress Tree Tunnel

Just north of San Francisco, there's a row of giant Monterey cypress trees that forms a “tree tunnel”. Loved by Bay Area locals, it's a tucked away spot in the Point Reyes National Seashore for photographers to capture early morning sun rays, or for anyone to get some moments of solitude.

At the end of the tunnel, you'll find the historic RCA/Marconi Station. In the early 1900s, this was a wireless telegraph station where operators would tap out Morse code messages from the ships to shore. With the decline of Morse code and new technology, the station was retired in the late 1990s, and is currently preserved and cared for by the National Park Service and volunteers from the Maritime Radio Historical Society.
