Point Lobos is always beautiful! Easy trail, took a short side trip to Gibson Beach. If you’ve never been to Point Lobos, would recommend also hiking over to the Cyprus Grove and Whalers Cove. Just go early - parking already closed (on a Sunday) by 9:20 am. Easy to park and walk in. And just be careful of poison oak.

Easy loop of Southern Point Lobos State Marine Reserve. Wooded with shade on the interior while offering sunny portions along the coastline. This hike utilizes S Plateau, Bird Island, S Sea Shore, Lace Lichen, and Pine Ridge Trails. Plenty of places to access beaches, such as China Cove, Hidden Beach and Weston Beach. Benches, picnic tables and bathrooms can be found on the route.

First to Review

Mostly flat ground. Many tourists at the shore. Seems like a good place to plan for picnics and some cozy, laidback walks.
