Pismo Beach, California Map

Didn't read the other review. Entry is gated and chained.

Shorter than expected. Perfect for a dog walk, not great for exercise. One small hill, flat enough for a jogger stroller, but easy enough to have baby in a carrier.

A little steep on each end for hobbits, an easy trek for elves. But very scenic.

A bit hot today and the cave was filled with broken glass. The ropes with knots helped the kids get down to the beach with was fun and an adventure for all. The smokers and nudist on the beach were a little traumatic for the kids but offered some valuable teaching moments.

Quick fun trail

Short hike with great view of beach activities. Some of the hike is paved, but most is dirt access road and finally beach access trail.

Trail is now more like a road, a semi truck was driving down it and we had to wait off the road as it passed. Ends early at a locked chain link fence.
