Very nice mostly flat trail in Point Lobos Nature Reserve. Expect to park outside of the park and walk into the site. Trails are extremely well maintained and marked. Take the optional points to see the Sea Lions.

Beautiful hike along the coast - we saw sea lions and tons of jellyfish. Medium traffic and lots of little areas to explore!
