Just beautiful views of the coastline/ocean

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... read more

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

This is an amazing piece of property where the ocean meets the forest. It is absolutely the magical place and the hiking is not difficult at all. Although you can walk different trails for 30 minutes up to 2 hours. The diversity is fantastic.

Having been to Cambria several times, we were excited to discover a "new " area to explore. At the end of WIndsor (one of the main streets off Highway 1), there is a very small parking area (maybe 4 cars?), plus an additional small area for handicap parking. We parked, as did several others, on the street in this residential... More

I loved the driftwood architecture. The ruggedness of the terrain and the fact that it was also a preserve.

This is an awesome place for an easy stroll before dinner or in the morning. It's flat, so even older people or kids can enjoy it. Seal, otters, occasionally whales can be spotted from the cliff side.
