Hiking the CA coastline
My husband and I enjoy hiking & vacations on California coastline. The California coast offers a variety of great hikes and views. The state budget cuts are threatening public access to these gorgeous lands and we risk losing these amazing treasures. I hope sharing these images will help people realize the beauty of our coastline. By visiting our parks, we can help keep them ours. Not all of these hikes are on state parks or right on the coastline, but at least within a couple miles thereof.

Beautiful hiking in Cambria, California

Large arrow left

This Ranch Preserve has several miles of trails that run along the edge of the coastline and up sloping hills into pine forests. I've hiked here several times with my husband and we've seen squirrels, red-tail hawks, kites, egrets, deer, whales, and dolphins. There are burrowing owls, but we haven't seen those yet!

This is a beautiful place to stop and spend a couple hours walking out in the fresh ocean air.
