  • We went to see these butterflies late in the afternoon to keep busy and increase our step count. We got to the right part of the grove and we saw lots of butterflies but they were all hanging together...  more »

  • Very pretty even if there are no butterfly's. Go there from December to February to catch the butterfly migration. Go there soon after it rains to see a fairy wonderland
  • Just you got to go on time to be amazed by monarch migration.This hike is grate experience in February when butterfly eggs are hatches and surrender area is full with yellow and purple flowers .Going toward ocean is a flat open area ideal for dog walkers and beach is just nice for walk and find the shells .
  • The butterflies fly all the way from Mexico, but they don't come anymore because President Trump put a travel ban on the immigrating beauties.
  • The monarchs are amazing creatures, they come January/February usually. Beautiful walk to the Eucalyptus Grove and beyond.
  • Very picturesque, but be careful there are danger signs saying it closed, cause the trees branches break and fall at random. It makes for a public hazard but I say just be Vigilant and observant of your surroundings and it shouldn't be a problem.
