This site is located at the end of the Monterey Peninsula in Pacific Grove. From Highway 1, take the Highway 68 west exit. Continue on Highway 68 until you reach the light at Sunset Ave and make a left. Continue on Sunset until you see Asilomar beach on your left-hand side. The site will be about a quarter mile past the main beach entrance. If you have reached Pico Ave you have gone too far. To reach the site, look for the State Parks marker #10 and continue down that trail straight to the tidepools.


Parking is on your left-hand side on Sunset Ave.


Restrooms are located at the Asilomar Conference Grounds across the street from the monitoring site.
