HIKE --> Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

Here's a great opportunity to work off a couple of those Christmas dinner calories.  Join us for a walk around the perimeter of Pt. Lobos State Natural Reserve.  We'll travel through the park's headlands, coves and meadows and see the sea lions (for which the point is named), sea otters, gray whales (maybe) and many species of birds.

Our trail will be approximately 4.9 miles long with no significant elevation change.

We'll meet at 9:30 AM at the Nob Hill parking lot in Capitola and then carpool and caravan to Pt. Lobos.  Nob Hill is located at 809 Bay Ave., Capitola, CA 95010 just south of the Porter St. / Bay Ave. exit from Hwy 1 in Capitola.  Park near the Palo Alto Medical Foundation / Sutter Health at the northwest corner of the parking lot.

Here's a useless factoid: Pt. Lobos (Punta de los Lobos Marinos) was named by the Spanish after the sea lions that inhabit the area.  They used the term "sea wolves" to describe what we today refer to as "sea lions".

    Well, so much for reading directions. I'm AT Point Lobos at 930. It was a good idea to carpool. Too bad I didn't see that. I'll be waiting at the P.L. gate.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
