Gates 8, 9, or 10: Soberanes Point
How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Explore coastal Garrapata State Park with this series of caches appropriate for cachers of all ages and abilities. Parking and trail access is via nineteen numbered turnouts along Highway 1. All are on the ocean side of the highway.
This cache may be accessed from any of the three numbered gates--all are trailheads for the Soberanes Point trails. I chose Gate 10 for a longer blufftop hike along the base of Whale Peak--the southern half of the two-mile Soberanes Trail loop. There is no coastal access in this area, but the blufftop views are stunning. For a slightly more-strenuous hike and views-to-forever, consider Cobalt Blue Drei (GC5787) located at the top of Whale Peak.
Although the cache is hidden in the vicinity of a fence located along a very steep blufftop area, it is not necessary to leave the trail to access the cache. Be aware that there may be muggle activity at the nearby viewpoint.
The cache is a 35mm-type container with small trade items and a log. Please bring your own pen.
