We always make time to do a hike thru Fiscalini over to town for breakfast at Creekside. On the way back we'll take the Fiscalini boardwalk to the hotel. It's a heck of a walk but so worth it.

Lovely location to take a walk when in Cambria. Lovely benches made from driftwood and other objects. The friendliest and most helpful people walking also. Great place to walk your dogs. Love this place. Walked it everyday.

This is a fantastic ocean-front piece of property that was saved from development and turned into a nature Reserve - all thanks to the Fiscalini Family and local citizens who didn't want to see just more houses covering this beautiful ranch land. Lovely walking trails...More

We’ve stayed many times in Cambria, but were not aware of this area. The trails were all fairly easy, and the all were pet friendly. We loved all of the unusual benches placed throughout the area. We didn’t walk the higher elevation trails, but stayed...More

I love walking the Fiscalini Ranch trail. Trail runs right on the bluffs above the ocean, with whimsical driftwood benches ever so often. Surf was huge last time I visited & beautiful to see and listen to!

We enjoyed starting this trail in Cambria and then across Hwy 1 and onto the beach. Lovely. Easy hiking.

This preserve was saved from housing development and has turned out to be one of the smartest ideas for Cambria. A walk above the bluffs will fill your soul. Pelicans, gulls, egrets, loons ,and hawks fly overhead. A place to reflect.

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
