This is one of our can't-miss destinations when in Cambria. Not only is it beautiful, but they allow our dog, OFF LEASH! She loves it. And so do we. Do a short, ocean-view walk, or a longer hike through the pines.

This is a beautiful walk along the ocean in a natural setting. There is one path that is leash free, as well as acreage up the hill to peruse. The path is pretty basic, maybe 1 mile each way? Great to try if you are in the area

The hiking here is great with many trails to choose from. You can hike on a boardwalk right on the cliff above the ocean, or walk or cycle on the middle fire road, and have your dogs off leash. The upper trails also have great views, so you can see the whales at certain times of the year. Bring your... More

I live here and get to take this walk often, but every visitor we take agrees with us, that it is the most beautiful walk we have! Good path for disabled also.

The Fiscalini Ranch extends from the center of Cambria all the way to the ocean. It cuts a wide swath right through Cambria and is some of the most beautiful land on the entire Central Coast! There is an abundance of wildlife that meanders through the Ranch with places where one can sit and enjoy the beauty. I often pack... More

I started at Moonstone Beach and walked up here - there is a loop about 2 miles-ish around, it was so hot, in 80's that I preferred to walk along the ocean view path until i reached the residential bit, then turned around and walked back the same way. You are allowed dogs on leashes, there are some unusual sculpturesque... More

A perfect place for a stroll any time of day. We walked here in the morning when the fog was lifting, and in the evening at sunset. Both spectacular and totally different. I love this place.

I live two blocks from The Fiscalini Ranch and walk it several times a week. A local favorite place to walk dogs, hike, bike or just meet friends and chat while enjoying the beauty of the ocean and looking for a wonderful variety of mushrooms in the forest. Many trails to choose from easy to heart pounding. Cayotes, skunks,dear and... More

If you're looking for a family friendly hike in Cambria with majestic views, come to Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. With numerous trails through the 430 acres, you can hike up to a photo opt while both the kids and dogs are being occupied by various sites. Most dogs were off leash (which was great for our dogs too) and the trails... More

During our stay in Cambria we are staying in a house just down the street from Fiscalini Ranch. I am so glad we discovered this gem. The Bluff Trail is about 1 mile long and has wonderful views of the ocean. Part of is is gravel and the other boardwalk. It is a delightful meandering path. We have enjoyed having... More
