Penny and I started off our Point Reyes trip with a couple of easy hikes around the main visitor station of the park.  Kule Loklo features a recreated Coast Miwok village as it might have looked 200 years ago.  The shelters are interesting, but we were disappointed that the largest structure in the village was locked up.  The gaps in the door provided evidence that the temperature inside was a good deal cooler than that outside.

Doubling back from the village may be the easy way out.  We made a loop out of it by jumping on the Horse Trail and then Morgan Trails.  Neither transition to these trails was very clear, making it a tough sell for the casual visitor.

As you might expect, the Horse Trail is shared with equestrian riders, as is the Morgan Trail.  So expect to encounter horses there and yield as the pass.

This trail is not ADA compliant, but it's fairly short and flat so it's easy enough for almost all abilities.
