Beautiful day. Great trails. Clean-ish. Pack it in, pack it out people!

Perfect beachside family walking trail. Tons of spots for kids to play in the dunes and beautiful views.

Mostly along a golf course but starts at butterfly grove if you park on the street.

Butterfly’s in the trees at the start of the hike

Ran out on the path and back on the beach for a change! Had to take shoes off to get across an inlet but very shallow and made a nice change. Was winter so quite quiet - just the way I like it :)

The first two miles of the hike was through the dunes on a sand trail. It was beautiful, but next time I’ll start at Grand Ave so we are on the boardwalk for longer.

Ran this trail this morning. It is very easy to find however it can be busy with people walking the dogs. The boards can be difficult to run on also. But the views are spectacular. I was there on early on a Monday morning. The butterflies are just starting to arrive at the monarch butterfly Grove

lovely old eucalyptus trees to the east of the dunes. you can sit on the low branches and some dried out logs. the dunes are particularly beautiful and the beach is nice and wide, so it doesn't feel crowded even when it's busy. gonna make a point of coming here with my pup every time I get the chance.

Easy stroll, our favorite part was the wooden boardwalk over the dunes, it connects to the Monarch trail too. good for an evening walk

the view is beautiful but in my opinion the trail was a little difficult.

Great little walk between Grover Beach and Pismo Beach. Nice slow inclines and declines. Nice to just stroll and watch the ocean. I also saw my first Garden snake in the Ice Plant.

Nice trail to take a walk and see the ocean waves

Nice, flat, easy hike. Exactly two miles from Grover Beach trailhead near Fin’s restaurant to Pismo Beach pier. Walk is through the Monarch Nesting Grove which is shaded and lovely. Trail is a little muddy in the winter, but very passable. Only downside is about 1/2 mile of the hike after the Monarch Grove is along the PCH and next to an RV park. Busy with cars but you can walk in the bike lane. Otherwise, nice hike along the beach.

Beautiful views from this trail. Seeing the monarch butterflies was a plus!

We walked from the north end of Pismo Beach to the dunes south of the Monarch preserve for a total of 6.2 miles round trip. The beach wasn’t crowded and it’s beautiful—cliffs, rocks, a few tide pool areas, surfers, waves, birds and dunes. Just skip the trek into Pismo and stay on the beach. It’s really a beautiful beach area.

The Monarchs were starting to arrive when we visited but this is a beautiful place to walk through trees, sand dunes, and the beach. Loved watching the Monarchs. Don’t miss this if you are around during Monarch season—Late October until February or so.

Lots of little beauty to behold if you take your time to look around and witness it. Nice easy trail perfect for a pleasure stroll with family, friends, or solo.

Part dirt trail, part boardwalk along the beach. Beautiful and scenic! Some homeless folks here and there.

Parts of it are nice. Other parts are overgrown including a tree branch blocking the path (you have to go over and under it). Consider bringing bug spray (and pruning shears).

This was a beautiful trail even outside of butterfly season, we saw probably 10, but enjoyed the hike to the beach that was easy enough for kids:)

A must do! Beautiful walk along the coast. Well maintained walkway. Dogs are ok in a leash. Goes all the way to the butterfly grove. Awesome walk.
