Beach to Backcountry Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"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."

"In the mountainous backcountry of the 2,775-acre Gaviota State Park, a network of trails lead to scenic overlooks, sandstone outcroppings, intriguing caves and oakstudded rolling hills. This hike follows the Beach To Backcountry Trail across the rolling terrain to a vista point high above Gaviota Pass. There are great views of Gaviota Peak, the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands."
