Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is outstanding for sightseeing, photography, painting, nature study, picnicking, SCUBA diving, and jogging.
In addition to the spectacular beauty, nearly every aspect of its resources is of scientific interest. There are rare plant communities, endangered archeological sites, unique geological formations and incredibly rich flora and fauna of both land and sea.
Respect the power of the ocean and keep at a safe distance. Remain on designated trails and stay away from the rocky cliffs. Rock climbing is absolutely prohibited. Dogs are not allowed in the reserve, even if they are in a vehicle. During summer months, parking inside the Reserve tends to fill up before 10 am so plan accordingly. Limited street parking is available on the side of the road just outside the entrance to the reserve.
