We take a walk in this preserve every time we visit Cambria and always enjoy it. Crashing waves and vistas can't be beat! Nature in action!

I walk through the Fiscalini ranch is amazing. Especially if you've been drinking a lot of wine and eating in the restaurants in Cambria you will need to take a walk on this beautiful ranch. There are several gorgeous custom-made benches to sit on and enjoy the views of the ocean and the mountains. I love this place and it's... More

We took a hike here today and it was fabulous. The trial is well maintained and many people walk their dogs here. It's about 2 miles one way and connects the homes on the " Lodge Hill' section of town to the ' Park Hill ' section by Shamel Park. Many benches, crafted from driftwood, have been dedicated by couples... More

The Bluff Trail is the most popular and the views are incomparable! We have seen dolphins, sea lions and a whale off the coast on its migration journey. You might see deer (common on the... More

we celebrated new years day at Fiscalini and can put the experience in one of our top 10 new year's day list. The preserve affords amazing views of the Pacific ocean and on a clear day we were able to enjoy whales migrating from Alaska!!! The trails are easy to navigate and yet provide good exercise as you climb up... More

Great loop of a walk. Perfect for dog walking. They even provide waste bags. Good place to see Egrets, Herriers, Hawks and other birds. Can be breezy but is always beautiful.

Some wooden trails and there are wide trails nearer to cliffs, narrow trails take you inland and up to hilltop for views of Coast as well as... More

Cannot beat the hiking with or without pets---marvelous views of otters, occasional seals, and whales offshore. Great floral changes throughout the year.
