Headlands Nature Walk

This walk focuses on the plants and the animals that can be found on the Dana Point Headlands. It is designed to introduce participants to our local plant communities, notably Coastal Sage Scrub, and to teach them about the wildlife that relies on it! Participants will learn specifically about our endemic (found only in southern California) rare and endangered plants and animals (notably Cliff Spurge, Pacific Pocket Mouse, and Coastal California Gnatcatcher). 

The Headlands Nature Walk typically occurs on the first Saturday of each month, however for the month of September our walk schedule is slightly modified to accommodate our Docent Training Course. Walks are still open to the public, but if you're seeking more information and involvement with the Nature Interpretive Center and the Dana Point Headlands Conservation Area, please see this flyer for more information on our Docent Training Course.

 All walks begin at the Nature Interpretive Center (34558 Scenic Drive, Dana Point, CA 92629) at 9 AM. The walk is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours long, covering about 1-1.5 miles.

Please RSVP to or (949) 248-3527

Trails are open 7AM to Sunset daily

Nature Interpretive Center hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10AM to 4PM
