Hearst Memorial State Beach

Hearst Memorial State Beach Professional Review and Guide

"This hike explores the half-mile coastal crescent that curls toward San Simeon Point. You’ll stroll the soft white sand above open bluffs of coastal scrub, through forests of eucalyptus, pine, and cypress to tide pools teeming with life. Foxes, coyotes, and bobcats slink along the bluffs, while red- and white-tailed hawks and northern harriers scour the brush for the rabbits, mice, and voles. Watch nearshore kelp beds to spot sea otters, harbor seals, and sea lions as they frolic, feed, or happily float by."
