Description

The Monarch Butterfly Nature Preserve is a serene sanctuary in Pacific Grove, right on the coast of the eponymous ocean, midway along the Monterey Peninsula.

The preserve provides a vital habitat for the majestic monarch butterfly during its annual migration, and by doing this hike you'll witness the awe-inspiring sight of thousands of monarch butterflies clustering together in the shelter of the pine and eucalyptus trees.

The preserve has a tranquil atmosphere, and its stunning natural beauty makes it a great place to enjoy a little serenity on the Pacific Coast.

As well as the butterflies, hiking the Monarch Butterfly Nature Preserve also allows you to stroll beautiful trails and enjoy some vast ocean views.
