Sequoia Audubon Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Brambles and birdcalls engulf hikers in the lush marshlands just inland from Pescadero State Beach. From the incessant surf to the quiet hillside at trail’s end, you’ll be accompanied by critters underfoot and critters overhead, some of them rare and endangered. Pescadero Marsh is no destination for the hiker in a hurry. The disorganized surf on Pescadero State Beach, depending on how raucous its mood, may inspire a quick step at the trailhead, but once you mount the levee that borders Butano Creek and the still waters of the wetland, your pace will slow. Treading lightly and quietly brings forth the songbirds that flit through the brush, the shorebirds that harvest the waterways, and the rare reptiles that call the 600-acre marsh home."
