Recommended hike, Bluff trail from Windsor Blvd, Seaclift Estates entrance, easy parking to trail entrance. ADA accessible, dog friendly, park to path is wooden walkway and part regular dirt trail. Beautiful coastal views. There are a few park benches to sit and enjoy the scenery. It is mostly a very even flat surface and should be fairly easy for seniors... More

We walked the seaside trail (about 1 mile each way) two different mornings. Incredible ocean views and enjoyed the flora and fauna along the trail. Lots of wildflowers, birds, squirrels, etc. There are several different trails. Some are boardwalks, so easy access for wheelchair or stroller. Don't miss this treasure

You can tell the locals really don't want outsiders to know this place is here as there are no signs leading to this spot. I just happened to notice it on Google Maps and thought it might be interesting. On a Monday morning there were many hikers and joggers along the trails that offered great views. There are short side... More

This is a great open space preserve in the middle of town. Several identified pedestrian and bike trails criss cross the property and the walk along the coast is spectacular. We entered from the north side, but understand you can get in on the east and south borders as well.

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.
