William R. Hearst State Beach to San Simeon Point Professional Review and Guide
"The San Simeon Bay Trail begins at William R. Hearst State Beach along a crescent of white sand. The hike leads to the tip of San Simeon Point, a peninsula extending a half mile into the ocean. The bluff top trails are on the private property of the Hearst Ranch, and although the trails are frequently used, there are no public easements to the point. At the point are beach coves, dramatic rock formations and tidepools. The trail follows the bluffs through a beautiful forest of eucalyptus, pine, cedar and cypress trees. Portions of the bluff top cliffs are unstable and caution is advised."
