Description

North of the Ao Nuevo Natural Preserve is a unique section of coastal terraces, scenic bluffs, and secret beaches. The scenery from this trail is nothing short of stunning, and a journey out on this sandy trail is well worth your time. The way is mostly flat, and the sandy surface will be the only real obstacle. Along the way, you'll be unshaded, but you'll also have unobstructed views of the ocean.
