Hiking Trails: One of the best ways to learn about wildland fire is to hike through an area that has recently burned. Numerous trails run through the area in Point Reyes National Seashore that burned during the Vision Fire in 1995. These visitors are walking through a stand of regenerating Bishop Pine trees.
