Nicasio is surrounded by oaks and fields, Nicasio is a quiet little unincorporated town that gives the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.  It is, however, only 30 miles north of San Francisco and a few miles west of Novato.  The area is primarily used for agricultural purposes such as organic farming and dairy and cattle grazing lands.  It is also close to the Point Reyes National Seashore, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Samuel P. Taylor State Park.
