California's gorgeous Point Lobos State Park

Two miles south of Carmel, this reserve is widely considered the "crown jewel" of California's state parks. Highlights include Pinnacle Point, which you can reach through the Cypress Grove Trail; Headland Cove; Sea Lion Point Trail to Sea Lion Rocks, where you can see barking sea lions; and Whalers Cove, great for scuba diving as well as home to a history museum covering the commercial whaling the 19th century; you can still spot gray, humpback, and blue whales at certain times of year during their offshore migrations.

It's just one of the enticing stops on Tripatini member Teresa Brashear's post A Fantastic California Road Trip: San Francisco to Carmel.
