San Simeon Nature Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"San Simeon Creek ripples through a rolling landscape that’s lush green after winter rains, blanketed with wildflowers in spring, and studded with gnarled coast live oaks and wind-sculpted Monterey pines year-round. Diverse habitats shelter a range of wildlife, including woodpeckers, elusive bobcats, coyotes, wintering golden eagles, and wild turkeys. Interpretive signs describe the seasonal wetlands, vernal pools, an 1800s ranch site, and prehistoric cultural sites of the Chumash and Salinian peoples."
