I'm proposing to my gf at Pt Lobos in mid Aug on a Saturday, and will be flying in some family for the surprise. I've never been to Lobos but my gf's best friend has, so they'll be exploring the park all day together.
I'll be reaching the park by 4:15/30 in the afternoon, unfortunately not any earlier. The plan is for me and the family to start on a trail half an hour before my gf and her friend, and then surprise her somewhere on it.
I realize parking will likely be very full, but I'm also hoping some people might start leaving by the time I get there. Does anyone have a map of the parking lots at Lobos? I can't find one and the rangers are nice but have just said I'll have to see what's available when I get there.
Cypress is the trail I had my heart set on, but I'm worried how long it would take us to walk there if we couldn't find nearby parking...so possibly as far out as highway 1.
Thanks for any advice! Hope to go to Bird Island no matter what though, because I have a picnic planned for afterward.
p.s. this is the best map I've found, and I thought maybe there is a parking lot wherever the WC initials appear, since those are public restrooms? At the minimum there must be a parking lot by the picnic areas, but I'm hoping there's more than just three lots.Edited: 3:14 pm, July 27, 2013
