Amidst the rolling terrain of Gaviota State Park, the Beach to Backcountry Trail winds its way up a ridge through hillsides covered in wildflowers to large sandstone caves with views of the Pacific. After dropping down behind the caves, you will begin a short descent into a completely different environment—wooded trails hidden under heavy tree cover. Here the trail intersects a network of other trails traversing the park.
