Love that place. It’s very quiet. You can enjoy a quick or longer stroll in nature. The hike is very easy and there tons of little spot to just enjoy a picnic.

This is a nearly level marsh adjacent to the ocean. Bring binoculars! Water birds (ducks, etc.) were very skittish the day I visited. I hiked the packed dirt Butano Trail. Trails are accessed from Pescadero State Beach on opposite side of highway, or a dirt...More

This is an actual marshland with lots of birds and if you are lucky you might see a seal or otter. You can meander through the marsh at a nice pace.

This is a nice marsch area to see animals such as deer and birds. it is part of the Pescadero State Beach area. It is very pretty in its own right. There are sometimes ranger led tours of the marsch area.

The beach had loads of seals hauled out and sunning themselves. This is a great place to take the kids.

Very natural & unspoilt. We have seen herons & snakes there, wonderful!! If you appreciate ht beauty of nature & don't need man made attractions, this is the place to go.

A real marshland. When the wild mustard is in bloom it's lovelly. I never found it a great place to hike, just a place to look at from the various road vantage points at times.

I couldn't find the Pescadero State Beach page on Trip Advisor but the marsh is part of the park. In one word, this beach views are "amazing". You can climb down onto the beach from the north side parking lot.

We had a nice walk, but parked in the dirt lot on the way to Pescadero. The trail from there dead ended instead of making a loop. It would have been better if we had started on the ocean side-later we saw that the trail...More
