Very nice trails. Wonderful views. Easy walking

Great Views

Good trail with views. But lookout for high grass, ticks are big problem here.

Love this park! Stunning views along the coastline and many trails. Love the Bluff Trail along the coast. View seals, bird life, flowers. Dogs allowed on leash. Has great, unique wood benches for stopping to take in views. Mix of gravel, dirt, and wood boardwalk.

Spectacular views! The bluff trail is kid and stroller friendly. Easy and very well maintained. The benches along the trail are wonderful. Lots of other trail options throughout the Preserve. Will definitely be exploring this place again and again.

Beautiful!

Love this trail because I never see anyone on it. I wouldn’t consider it a hike more like a walk into nature. Heaps of wildlife

Nice relaxing

Easy relaxing

Love this trail walk it every time we visit

Spectacular views and great wildlife viewing. I saw over 200 seals in one area and whales spouting on the horizon. Lots of trail options. The lower trails with boardwalk were very busy at Friday/10 am, but once I switched to the upper paths, I barely passed a few people.
I could look at this view forever!

Beautiful walk with fresh ocean breeze and great scenery! Such a nice place to live here on the central coast enjoying the great walks and hiking!

Several environments in one easy trail. Enjoyed it a lot. No water or facilities that I saw.

There was more wildlife in one area than I had ever experienced!

I didn’t find it very challenging, but it was still a very peaceful hike. There’s views of the ocean and the mountains. I would definitely recommend this trail.

Great trails for all ages!

Great views of the Central coast, but limited parking at the North end trail head.

Wonderful hike today with four boys aged 5-13. Did three miles of bluff and ridge trails. Gorgeous scenery. Do not follow directions here. Go all the way down Windsor Ave. they have parking there. Or park of highway 1 and walk in through the Santa Rosa Creek trail (it’s only .2 miles to the views of the ocean). Great spot.

Beautiful scenic walk with great spots to stay and eat!

Easy and such beautiful views!!!! Loved it

Beautiful scenery. The bluff hike is more or less flat with some minor inclines. It is dotted with some artistic benches. It is connected to a rather extensive network of trails up in the hills that are also worth exploring. There are tide pools off the bluff trail and also just down the street at a small neighborhood park. Apparently there is a docent-led hike there on Saturday mornings.

This was an easy hike, almost a walk. Enjoyed the mix of forest and bluffs. The forest section is quiet and peaceful, not heavily trafficked. The bluff section has more foot traffic but the coastal views are amazing, especially on a clear day. There are numerous custom styled benches along the bluffs where you can sit for a bit and just enjoy the views. This is almost the same exact trail as the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, but has slight variations and seems to be a little shorter. The starting point on this trail also differs and is probably better in terms of the parking situation. This trail starts you off at the bluffs, while the other trail starts you off near the forest.
