Kilchis Point Reserve reviews
A pleasant little find a shirt distance from our tiny house. Easy walkability and gorgeous floral and fauna. Make a short hike or meander along slowly as you wish. more »
Visited here after searching for places on the coast that are handicapped accessible. It’s a beautiful place and David, the good-hearted and knowledgeable caretaker, took us on a long tour through... more »
This is a fine, quick stop off of 101 to learn about local history. A great place to take kids for a quick hike or field trip. As for bird watching, it was a dud. Nice bird blind, though.The trail is too short and flat to be labeled a hike.
Very well taken care of nature reserve! Take time to do the entire trail. Especially make it to the end of the trail for the amazing view. The park is super clean. I did not see any trash or rubbish anywhere on site. If you are swinging through put this on the must see list. Also, the entire trail is handicap accessible.
