Although many people know about Moonstone Beach, there is an equally impressive area to walk called "Fiscalini Ranch." It is about a mile loop, and from the boardwalk path, there are lots of little trails leading to benches and other lookout points. It's a great place to bring dogs. The views are spectacular with the ragged coast on one side... More

Took a hike from town, up across the highway, and up to the ridge. Beautiful day and beautiful view!

There are few walks on this planet more beautiful! And I have traveled extensively! The quirky benches along the way are great if you need a break :)

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.
