Ano Nuevo Point Trail

Davenport, California

Ano Nuevo Point Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Año Nuevo State Reserve is home to a large population of elephant seals, the largest pinniped in the ocean. The seals come ashore at various times of the year to molt, mate, and occasionally wage bloody battles for breeding rights. An easy day hike leads you out along the Año Nuevo headlands to the scene of all this natural drama: broad sandy beaches nestled up against the dunes of the point. A limited number of visitors are allowed in each day. Call in advance for season-specific information and reservations."

Easy flat trail to beach would just be a nice Sunday walk, but when you get to see elephant seals lying 30' away, 40-50 of them, while some snort and play in the water on the beautiful california coast, it raises it up several stars. Very interesting docents too! Really glad we did it! Ben
