if you're looking for a scenic walk or run, there's a lovely path lining the shore which... great places to get lost in your thoughts or just take in the beauty of the ocean.

We live in this area and it is always pleasant to leisurely walk on the pathway and see cluster of deer 3-5 of them on the side of path. Such a beautiful walk going towards the ocean and see the elephant seals

Nice boardwalk stroll with great views of the shoreline and rolling hills. Great if you have dogs. It's about a mile each way, and quite lovely at sunset.

We just discovered this "diamond of a spot" on our trip to Cambria. We love walking Moonstone Beach, but did not know of this area that actually sits above Moonstone Beach, looking down on the cliffs. The scenery is awesome. Just like Moonstone boardwalk, Fiscalini Ranch Preserve is also a planked walkway that give you lots of exercise, fresh air,... More

A great stop for a restful stroll. The ocean views are breathtaking. Sometimes you can see otters, dolphins, and whales.

Easy hike and readily accessible. Most of the hike on a boardwalk and then compact gravel or dirt path. The views are glorious, so good for a person - birds flying overhead and otters playing down below. Easy walk, some folks with canes.

Beautiful trail with driftwood benches along the side. The ocean views are great. You can also hike inland a bit as part of this preserve area. One day we say at least 8-10 common egrets in the immense field.

This outdoor area is near the hotels in Cambria and San Simeon. Just a beautiful area to hike and explore. The views of the ocean are spectacular.
