The park has two miles of beach front, with coastal hiking and beautiful views of the Pacific. The park offers diverse coastal vegetation (spring wildflowers) with trails running from the ocean beaches into the dense redwood groves. Sea lions, sea otters and migrating grey whales frequent the coastal waters. We will hike Rocky Ridge & Soberanes Canyon Trails.
