The special purpose of a reserve is to forever protect an area of unique natural beauty and ecological significance. Afforded a higher level of statewide protection and ideally maintained in an undisturbed condition, the behavior of visitors has a tremendous impact on the health of Point Lobos State Natural Reserve.
Rapidly increasing numbers of well-meaning but uninformed visitors are damaging precious natural resources found within Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Please do your part to care for Point Lobos during your visit. Stay on marked trails, leave natural objects where you find them and do not disturb wildlife.
