Been coming to Cambria for 30 years. Haven't been in a while and the last time here, there was a possibility of this ranch being sold to developers. Great to see that it didn't go that way!!

Beautiful and peaceful walk for all ages. Easy parking in the neighborhood right where the walk begins. We saw squirrels, rabbits, lizards, flowers, sea otters swimming, sea lions relaxing on rocks, etc. Loved taking nature photos and enjoying the scenery. Don't miss this walk!

This is a really nice ocean walk. Do not use your GPS to get there. It is a wild goose chase. Ask some one or just turn right off Moonstone Drive and drive to the very end of the road and park and walk up...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
