“The wild and scenic California Coast up close.”
— Bob Gardner
Easy ride that can be as short or long as desired with great views all the way.
This trail connects the parking areas at the east and west ends of Wilder Ranch State Park hugging the coastline along the edge of oceanside cliffs. From the west end, the trail starts near Four Mile Beach looping around a pond out to the edge of the cliffs. With the ocean on one side, on the inland side, field crops are still grown in the summer. The trail turns inland at Three Mile Beach and runs along the railroad tracks before turning back towards the ocean. At the eastern end, the trail merges with the Old Cove Landing Trail
Trail can get muddy in wet weather so best to avoid after big storms.
The trail can be ridden as an easy out and back or can be combined with inland trails for a more challenging loop.
