Over 5 miles worth of scenic ocean trails in Rancho Palos Verde, California This place has it all. A beautiful golf course owned by Donald Trump, a picnic area with an amazing view of the ocean, must-do cliff side trails, a dog beach and some interesting television history. In 1996, MTV used surrounding areas of the penninsula to film the MTV Beach House. In addition, FOX filmed scenes from the hit show The O.C in the surrounding area and believe it or not, many of the Disney films - Pirates of the Carribean were photographed right on this coast. Why? Well, once you visit, you will quickly understand how much this area and its cliffs resemble those in Hawai'i. The trails here wind along the cliffs, some so close, those with fears of height should look away. Lined with coastal sage, cacti and many more native vegetation, you can't but help want to pack a mid day lunch and enjoy it beach-side. Right below the golf clubhouse is a tucked away beach - better known as the "dog beach". Frequented by locals and those from surrounding areas, you are sure to be in for lots of canine love. Give yourself ample time (1-3 hours) to explore the trails and tide pools along the beach.

I love visiting this area, whether it be to hike the trails, visit the dog beach, take photos, explore the tidepools, or simply to just have lunch with an awesome view....I can never get enough of the Palos Verde Penninsla.
