its a nice walk on a beautiful day.

Nice little walk with the boyfriend and dog. Enjoyed seeing butterflies.

This was a wonderful day walk. The ranger was kind and helpful and the beach was amazing!

A family favorite. We love walking the boardwalk to and from Pismo.

its a beautiful trail to walk...didnt see a single butterfly though :( however we did see a couple hummingbirds. very peaceful and relaxing little walk.

This is the perfect time of year for this trail and the butterflies are here, so go if you can! The staff is generally very friendly and helpful. Me and a couple of friends were just staring up at the butterfly hives when the lead docent came over donned in a huge hat and a butterfly-imprinted ascot and just started talking about butterfly behavior. And how sometimes the male butterflies drag female butterflies down to the ground and have sex with them in a way that can only be described as rape. Well, uh, yeah.... Anyways, the butterfly grove is best viewed during the day, but walking out to the beach is best during sunset, the trees along the beachfront look really cool in sunset silhouette.

Great running trail. Flat, peaceful, other runners.

Nice spot for dogs and butterfly viewing. Go when it's sunny because that's when the monarchs are more active. Between the grove and the beach is a state run campground with flush toilets. Dogs can enjoy the beach on leash and there is plenty of bird watching for both species.
