Very nice trail. Fog in morning and sun in afternoon. Saw several whale blows about 1/2 mile out to sea.

Beautiful walk with ocean views. Park at the end of the path with trees and places to sit over looking the ocean.

A nice relaxing wooden mile long boardwalk along the beach featuring plants and some lizards and an occasional rabbit. Very romantic

Popular trail in Cambria with boardwalk along the coast. Water was stunningly blue. A cool compared to the heat wave in the central valley. We like to start at the northern end parking lot at the top of the overlook.

Suggested for active walkers. Our fur kids are always welcome (on leash) and the locals are friendly. Breath taking views of the ocean without getting sand in your shoes; although there is access points along the trail.

I LOVE a foggy beach & this was a perfect beach for that. A relaxing, beautiful beach walk.

This trail is super easy to walk. Definitely not a challenge in the least, but it will give you lots of exploring to do. There is a staircase that leads down to a little beach with some rocks to climb on. A bit further north, there is a place where you can climb down a bit of a hill onto a really neat tide pool area with smooth, flat rocks. We saw otters, seals, starfish, anemones, some sort of baby shark looking creature, crabs, hawks, gulls, dragonflies, butterflies, squirrels, and many other birds and insects. Other parts of the boardwalk take you through more wooded areas and Moonstone Beach. Lots of interesting rocks as well, if you are into that. I will definitely be doing this trail again. Not for any sort of physical challenge, but because of all of the exploring it offers!
