Bruhel Point Rocks, one of the more recognizable features of the California Coastal National Monument. The exposed reef at low tide contains numerous tide pools and provides the habitat for a large colony of Harbor Seals that are easily visible from the trail. Black Oystercatchers, an extremely vocal shorebird, may be seen and heard moving around the reef. Gulls and cormorants are usually present, as well.
