Vista views of gorgeous Pacific Ocean landscape await you here. Put on your walking shoes and go for it ! You'll find many paths dotted with wildflowers. Lots of fresh air.

This is a beautiful and easy walk / hike mostly along the ocean. Spectacular views of the Pacific and marine life. Wonderful wild flowers in the Spring.

Strolled along the wood walkway that had a beautiful bay and ocean view. Serene area found at the end street of beautiful homes.

So awesome to walk on the cliffs above the ocean. One would not expect to find this little gem nestled in between two neighborhoods, but here it is.

What a lovely nature path, and how lovingly maintained. One could easily imagine that the surrounding fields were "untouched nature", but in fact they are carefully protected against invasive species and every sort of "weed". Lovely! I get more than enough of "untouched" nature on...More

This is a "must see" attraction in the Cambria. I highly recommend the Bluff Trail. It has great ocean views and the wildflowers are now in bloom. Kudos for the excellent job of preserving the habitat.

How fortunate we are to have this open space right on the ocean. Walking is easy due to boardwalk paths. The views are magnificent. At regular intervals are artistic, and comfortable, benches crafted like sculptures from driftwood.

We love hiking along the cliff/coast at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It's a great spot to watch sea life as well. Only down side is there is no restroom.

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

It depends from where you are on Benson Avenue. We are almost at the farthest eastern point of Benson which is about a mile to a mile and a half to the ranch. It is all down hill on Randall and from there you can walk to... More
