The Morro Bay Sand Spit is three-mile long narrow vein of land that separates Morro Bay and the estuary from the waters of Estero Bay and the Pacific Ocean. A fragile 80-foot sand dune ridge, stabilized by scrubs, grasses and succulents, runs the length of this natural preserve. Along the dunes are ancient Chumash Indian shell mounds. This hike follows the sand spit along the ocean side of the dunes.
