We really enjoyed this walk along the ocean, but up on the ridge. Such nice view at sunset. Relatively easy walk, with varing terrain, but not hard to negotiate. A must do if you have some spare time. It took us about 40 mins to...More

We walked through Fiscalini Ranch Preserve just before driving home from a nice weekend in Cambria. On both sides of this preserve are some gorgeous homes. There weren't many people on this walk, and it was relatively flat. Much of it had board walk planks,...More

Beautiful walk on the bluffs above the ocean. Several trails. Dogs are allowed off leash on the trails more inland (still great views of the ocean) but not on the bluffs' edge, for good reason. They could chase critters right of the edge, which our's...More

It's not for beach access but it's got amazing views of the ocean and a lot of wildlife. We strolled along and could see seals perched on the rocks below, condors flying what seemed like right next to us, squirrels scurrying around, a snake and...More

Beautiful walk along the bluffs of Cambria. The ocean offers a myriad of sights, birds of all types such as cormorants, pelicans, pipers, etc. If you walk far enough you will find Otter Cove and watch them play and eat. Easy walking for almost anyone...More

Love this place we have been coming once a year since 2008. We have seen whales, dolphins, sea otters & sea lions. Awesome place to watch the sunset.

Take a hike along the bluffs or go up into the hills. Many trails to choose from. My favorite is the hike along the coastline. It is so beautiful. So much wildlife to see such as condors, elephant seals, ground squirrels, pelicans and gulls and...More

It is public. There is parking at either end, though neither is very large. They are both through lovely residential areas. We usually park on the north end. You turn off Hwy 1 like you are going to Moonstone Beach BUT... More
