A nice loop through the cypress trees to many great views of coves below. This 1-mile loop is a favorite among park visitors because it offers great views and a close look at the area's famous Cypress trees, which naturally grow in only one other place in the world: Carmel Bay. The hike is relatively flat with views of headland cove, pinnacle cove, and cypress cove with 2 very short trails to get closer to the views. On a clear day you can see sea lions on sea lion rock and even the other side of monterey bay near Santa Cruz.

Beautiful scenery as you hug the coastline. Trees, marine life, and the picturesque cove on the east side of the trail. Easy trail for a short walk with a gorgeous view. Most of the trail is shaded.

It's hard to find a hike not to love at Point Lobos, every where you go is remarkable. This trail has the best of everything: great views of the waves crashing on the rocks and cliffs, as well as lots of cypress trees for which the area is famous.
