Best Hiking Trails in Asilomar State Beach

Staying in nearby Asilomar State Beach cabins makes it easy to access the ocean on foot. You can easily do this by following the main paths through the park, which also happen to be its primary nature trails.

  • 1. Asilomar State Beach Trail

    This short trail, just three-quarters of a mile long, lets you take a leisurely walk and enjoy the beauty that surrounds the beach. The trail is wheelchair-friendly as well; a beach wheelchair can be obtained at the park's registration desk.

  • 2. Conference Grounds Dune Boardwalk Trail

    Leading away from the conference center housed in the park is a boardwalk that offers you a clear view of the sea and dunes. It is kid-friendly and wheelchair-accessible. You can also walk your dog along the trail on a leash.

  • 3. Coast Trail

    Accessible in almost any weather, this quarter-mile boardwalk trail offers several lookout spots with views of the ocean, while the trail itself passes through 25 acres of the Asilomar Dunes Natural Preserve, just across the street from Asilomar State Beach. This trail is also enjoyable for the numerous plants species you can spot along the path.

Best Family Activities in Asilomar State Beach

Though the Pacific Ocean at Asilomar State Beach can be fairly cold and prone to rip tides, there's still plenty to do in this beautiful setting. With nearby Asilomar State Beach cabins as a home base, you can easily spend your days walking, wildlife spotting, biking, and more.

  • 1. Wildlife spotting

    The Asilomar Marine Reserve is home to thousands of species of flora and fauna. The area is popular with bird watchers, and from the shore, you might also spot dolphins swimming in the Pacific. The park's restored ecosystem includes thousands of plants, such as coastline oaks.

  • 2. BIking

    A bicycle path that runs parallel to the Coast Trail is a great option for those tired of walking (or reluctant to get sandy feet). If you don't have your own equipment with you, you can rent bikes from the Park Store, located in the Phoebe A. Hearst Social Hall.

  • 3. Beach walks

    Who doesn't love a casual stroll along the ocean front? Just keep in mind that since the beach is part of a marine reserve, shells and rocks found along the way should be left behind.
