About Point Lobos Ranch
This property is new and not currently available for public use, pending necessary planning, facility development and staffing.
The purpose of the Point Lobos Ranch property, in Monterey County, is to preserve and protect an extremely scenic portion of the northern Big Sur Coast, an area offering spectacular views of Carmel Bay and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary coastline. The property contains one of the world's largest native Monterey Pine forests, examples of the rare Gowen cypress and areas of the rare maritime chaparral plant community. The property and surrounding public lands provide mountain lion habitat, and its San Jose Creek provides steelhead spawning grounds. The property contains significant Native American archaeological sites and an early twentieth century complex of ranch buildings.
