on West Ranch Bluff Trail

Great views, awesome benches along the way, flowers, seals...makes it easy to walk and not think about the actual walk itself not

Super easy walk with lots of spots to walk down the beach. Beautiful scenery.

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.

Great hike! Flowers, birds, seals, sea anemones, hawks getting their prey. If you wanted you can fish or stroll on the beach.

Don’t follow this map! Better parking/entrances elsewhere. And the other entrances are nearer the ocean. This entrance is more for residents, not travelers.

Breathtaking views of the sparkling ocean and hills with rainbow hues of succulents. The trail is running over wood slats and depending on when you run/hike, you need to watch for walkers with dogs. I’m definitely going back!

Nice, solitary trail with wonderful cliff and ocean views.

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

Beautiful scenic hiking trail that was right along the ocean. Easy to access, not too long and was a real joy to complete the loop. Traffic is moderate but not too bad. Benches every so often, history boards at the beginning of the trail and keeps cool with the ocean breeze.

Very nice. This is a wonderful area and not overly crowded.

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

Beautiful view! Easy walking trail with hand made driftwood benches about every 50yds.

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

This trail made for a great leisurely hike, which is just what my husband and I were looking for to wrap up our anniversary. The ocean views were positively gorgeous! Along the trail we saw quite a few prairie dogs, bunnies and monarch butterflies. I can't wait to return!

A great trail for the kids to walk and explore. There's a wheelchair accessible loop, but also tons of little dirt trails to explore. Great ocean views!

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.

Beautiful place to walk if your looking for a nice stroll. I stayed in San Simeon for the night, arrived at 3pm for check in and adventured over to the park for a 2 hour walk. Went down to the beach and relaxed for a few. It was beautiful out and perfect temperature! If you're looking for a quiet place to rest or walk, this is it! I will definitely return!

Nice hike on the bluffs and down on the beach and rocks. We did it in reverse parking at the north end.
