Docent-led walks are offered on most days for visitors who would like to see things they might miss on their own, and to learn about the plants, animals, and history of Point Lobos. Most walks are general in nature, covering a variety of topics. Others are focused on a single theme, which can range from history to wildflowers to marine mammals to birds to poetry and more. Most walks last for an hour to an hour-and-a-half, and cover less than one mile of easy to moderate terrain.
Those planning a visit to the Reserve can find out when and where to join a walk on the Calendar.
Come join a guided walk and see things you have never seen even if you have visited Point Lobos many times. And sense the passion that our docents have for sharing the wonder with visitors from around the world. Some of our docents are fluent in several languages. Our volunteer docent program is fully funded by the Point Lobos Foundation..
The walking groups can be quite diverse, and the docent will try to serve the needs of as many people as possible. But if the pace is too slow for you, you are free to wander off on your own (as long as you stay on the trails.)
For those who have mobility difficulties, the Easy-Access Adventures offer a different kind of experience, where visitors proceed at their own pace, on foot or in their wheelchairs, and meet docents stationed strategically along one of our scenic ADA-compliant trails and help you see and learn about wonderful things. We even have wheelchairs for loan if needed. For details, go to the Easy Access Adventures page.
