It is impossible to express the attributes of the Lobos Ridge neighborhood without speaking of Point Lobos Ranch Preserve and the natural beauty and wildlife it protects. Point Lobos Ranch Preserve protects the unique plant life and animal habitat of this scenic and cherished portion of land. It is home to the world’s largest native Monterey Pine forest and contains rare chaparral and Gowen cypress trees. San Jose Creek is home to Central Coast steelhead spawning grounds and though you may never see one, mountain lions freely roam the forested area. Red-legged frogs and migrating songbirds also call this area home, as they have for ages. There are also Native American archaeological sites as well as an early twentieth century complex of ranch buildings. In 2010 The Big Sur Land Trust acquired Whisler-Wilson Ranch, a 317 acre piece of land that will be protected by the state and may be utilized for public access in the future for purposes of recreation and outdoor recreation. The Ranch is part of the historic Pt. Lobos Ranch which was once owned by the family of A.M. Allan a notable figure in Monterey history known for his works to protect Pt. Lobos from 19th century development.
Among the landmark features of the area are the Carmelite Monastery and Huckleberry Hill. Carmelite Monastery is a cloistered community of nuns and as such only the chapel and the grounds are open to visitors who wish to visit this peacefully beautiful place. The stonework and architecture are remarkable.
