Three Sisters Reserve


    The 99-acre reserve is one of several parcels that make up the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, managed by the Palos Verdes Land Conservancy. It is adjacent to the Upper Filiorum Preserve.

    Positioned on a rolling hillside, this area has spectacular ocean views and wonderful hiking trails that can be accessed from the end of Ocean Terrace Drive. It’s also the location of a 21-acre habitat restoration project, initiated in 2009, and is home to several rare wildflower and bird species.
