Such a lovely place to walk!

This is a beautiful park with clear trails for about an hour stroll. Bird sanctuary. Lovely benches to sit and contemplate. Sea life can include sea otters and lots of birds.

Beautiful, unobstructed views of the ocean! You can take a rigorous hike on the higher trails or a more sedate walk along the lower trails skirting the cliffs. Fabulous place for outstanding photographs! There always seems to be the type of surf that crashes to shore and looks like a herd of wild horses. Takes your breath away! I've seen... More

I always take family and friends here for a great walk near the beach. Dogs need to be on leashes on most of the trail. But there is a place for off leash too! Views of the ocean and surroundings are beautiful!

I enjoyed walking along the ocean on the trails at the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It was quite, the trails were easily accessible, and the view was just amazing. Great for families and people who enjoy nature in general.

large walking trails with awesome ocean views. dog friendly, easy walk. local people are friendly and helpful. bring water and go bathroom before. more about nature, not for catering tourists. most likely see deer, wild turkeys, lots of birds.

Great trails along the coastal bluffs, the perfect place for running or walking. Great views and trails are in good shape. Close to downtown Cambria.

This is a great spot for strolling, hiking, running, bird watching, photography, etc. The one small downside is limited access to the actual shore (for good reason - habitat protection). Otherwise, I can think of nothing at all negative to say about this preserve. Hike through native pine forest, next to riparian habitat along a stream, through coastal grassland, or... More

Fiscalini Ranch Preserve is a hidden gem. It's covers a huge area south and west of the villages of Cambria, There are well maintained trails, one of which follows right along the ocean with stunning panoramic views. There were several dozing seals on the beach below us and diving ducks looking for lunch. What a pleasure to sit on one... More

We took a two mile loop walk that started off on the bluff trail hugging the coast. There are several areas you may stop and sit on very artfully created wooden benches (no two alike). Dogs are allowed on leash on the bluff portion of the trail. There are other trail areas where they are allowed off leash. It was... More

Beautiful sea cliff views, Well-Groomed Trails, and Creative wooden bench sculptures make this place a must visit.
