So easy to find and so beautiful!
Best just before low-tide. Turn off of 101 isn't well marked, it just has a street sign "Baker Beach". Horse camp is at end of road. Trail passes from Baker Beach Horse Camp over the fore-dune to wide flat beach. Head North across Lilly Lake outlet stream on beach to base of cliffs below Hwy 101, interesting caves (with fishing net floats jammed high in the top by winter storms), groups of isolated rocks w pools/marine life (found Greenling and Sculpin up to 11"). At low-tide, can walk within a couple hundred yards of Sea Lion Cave entrance. From zero to a couple people at most year-round. Local resident.
