Great Coastal Hike/Walk

Love heading over to Fiscalini Ranch Preserve to walk our dog. Can choose to walk the "boardwalk" or, as we usually do, head up into the hills to hike with our pup off leash.

The walking trails are quiet easy and they take you along the coast. A few benches are located along the way so that you can sit and take in the breathtaking views of the ocean.

Most folks go to Moonstone Beach and walk the boardwalk. We did for years before we "discovered" the fantastic bluff walk on the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. To get there, cross Highway 1 at the end of West Village and continue straight until the road dead ends at Shamal Park. Follow the road left to the trail head for the Preserve... More

Great trails with fantastic views. Walking more than hiking,methought their was at least one trail we found that went up into a an area with pines. We were able to see seals, sea lions and all kinds of birds.

Beautiful views of the coast, dog friendly. Easy hike. Many good photo opportunities. There is a section for leashed dogs and unleashed dogs.

But check ahead and see if there's a marine layer - it's possible you could be fogged in...which is another kind of treat, but maybe not so great when you're expecting to see the ocean, and seals and birds, etc. It is an easy walk, very little uphill/downhill on the main path, unless you explore up the hill inland a...

Beautiful peaceful scenery as you walk the trail. I never made it the entire way, but even a short walk is so refreshingly beautiful. Enjoy Mother Nature!

It's about 2 miles total from one side to the other and you can choose to do the easy path along the bluffs or go uphill at the back. really nice that they kept an open space here.

If you love to walk and have a dog- a must. If you have a dog that likes to be off leash, stay off the boardwalk. Walk the upper road and pathways. A must is the beautiful dolphin chair at the top. The trails lead up the hill and through the pines and back down.. You cannot get lost! The... More

If you are looking for an easy hike with spectacular views this is the hike for you. One walks on a boardwalk, literally made out of boards....in good repair, along the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Scenic inlets and tide pools that you can look down upon and enjoy the surf splashing against the rocks. In June we had beautiful flowers... More
