What a lovely nature path, and how lovingly maintained. One could easily imagine that the surrounding fields were "untouched nature", but in fact they are carefully protected against invasive species and every sort of "weed". Lovely! I get more than enough of "untouched" nature on...More

This is a "must see" attraction in the Cambria. I highly recommend the Bluff Trail. It has great ocean views and the wildflowers are now in bloom. Kudos for the excellent job of preserving the habitat.

How fortunate we are to have this open space right on the ocean. Walking is easy due to boardwalk paths. The views are magnificent. At regular intervals are artistic, and comfortable, benches crafted like sculptures from driftwood.

We love hiking along the cliff/coast at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It's a great spot to watch sea life as well. Only down side is there is no restroom.

Spectacular easy hike overlooking the ocean near Moonstone Beach. Parts are covered with boardwalk, so wheelchair accessible. You can run or walk, but you will find it hard to not stop frequently to take pictures and just be awestruck by the overall beauty of it....More

We entered the preserve directly off of highway 1, so essentially went in the back door. As there had been plenty of rain this year the entire preserve was green and blooming with flowers (along with poison oak). The trails are well maintained. We walked...More

At this reserve you have several trail choices. You can walk on a boardwalk, dirt trails, flat or up on a small ridge. On the west side all have ocean views.

Yes, this is one of those "must do" attractions in Cambria. We almost didn't go, but decided to check it out on our way out of Cambria - I am so glad we did! There are some beautiful, easy hikes around the park. One of...More

It is public. There is parking at either end, though neither is very large. They are both through lovely residential areas. We usually park on the north end. You turn off Hwy 1 like you are going to Moonstone Beach BUT... More

It depends from where you are on Benson Avenue. We are almost at the farthest eastern point of Benson which is about a mile to a mile and a half to the ranch. It is all down hill on Randall and from there you can walk to... More
