We've been there based on the recommandation of the people downtown. It is a 2 hours walk just to enjoy the view and the ocean. Wonderful.

It's hard for me to power walk through FRP due to the gorgeous view of the coastline. It's a easy walk that even my friend, who has MS, could do. Thankful that this land will be preserved for future generations.

Just when you think the views from Moonstone Beach could not be beat, drive a few short miles South and take in the wonder of Fiscilini Ranch! Easy walking trails line the coast with expansive, panoramic views. Your walk is interspersed with wooden benches someone...More

Great place to walk the dogs or kids. Beautiful area saved/preserved by the locals, so respect the neighborhood it's in.

Been coming to Cambria for 30 years. Haven't been in a while and the last time here, there was a possibility of this ranch being sold to developers. Great to see that it didn't go that way!!

Beautiful and peaceful walk for all ages. Easy parking in the neighborhood right where the walk begins. We saw squirrels, rabbits, lizards, flowers, sea otters swimming, sea lions relaxing on rocks, etc. Loved taking nature photos and enjoying the scenery. Don't miss this walk!

It is public. There is parking at either end, though neither is very large. They are both through lovely residential areas. We usually park on the north end. You turn off Hwy 1 like you are going to Moonstone Beach BUT... More

It depends from where you are on Benson Avenue. We are almost at the farthest eastern point of Benson which is about a mile to a mile and a half to the ranch. It is all down hill on Randall and from there you can walk to... More
