Asilomar has a well developed interpretive library. Some of the key pamphlets can be downloaded from the Park's main web site. Several that will be especially helpful focus on coastal vegetation including trees, flowering plants, and sea life. These and more are available at the Park's HQ located in the south east corner of the Park on Crocker Avenue off Sunset Drive.
Accessing the Trail
1) Use the main entrance to the Asilomar Conference Center located at the intersection of Asilomar Blvd. and Sinex Avenue.
2) Take the first right, pass through the parking area and follow the perimeter road to the Housekeeping Building and swimming pool. Park if available or backtrack to the first available parking area on the north side of the road.
3) The Trail Head is located next to the swimming pool by the Greenhouses.
The Greenhouses are a key component for the Dunes Restoration project. About 50 plant species are started at this facility to give the young plants a head start prior to planting out in the dunes.
