Great hikes, fabulous views and very helpful docents!

“One of the most beautiful places on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you're heading up or down the coast it is a must see. Bring a picnic lunch, a camera and a good pair of walking shoes. It will blow your mind~

“Breath-taking vistas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This little state park is easy to navigate and has incredibly beautiful views. It costs $10 per car, but if you visit another state park in the same day, you don't have to pay again for entry.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We had such a great time at Point Lobos! If you are ever in the area, this place is definitely worth a visit! We went on a little trail run while we were there and took in the scenery. If you go, you can avoid paying the parking fee by parking outside the park and walking in. I put up a page about Point Lobos on my blog...if you want some more details you can check it out at:
