Description

Leave the parking lot in a northern direction and keep left. This lollipop run will take you to the actual Point Lobos after which the park is named. The loop portion starts at 0.15 miles and can be done in either direction. Turning left you'll soon reach a great open viewpoint on the bluffs. The big rocks towards the west are called South Point, the rocks to the north that are a little further away are Pinnacle Point. If you are lucky, you might even see whales from here. Continue further along the shore line. At 0.5 miles, there is a short spur trail to your left that leads to another good view point of Cypress Cove and North Point. Reach the end of the loop and return to the parking lot.
