The Northern California Coastline is famous for its beautiful hikes. With breathtaking, salty ocean breezes on one side and staggering landscapes of forests, hills, and valleys on the other, you can’t go wrong.
In Monterey County, you are a short drive away from many incredible and worthy hikes. There are hikes for every activity level, from the Asilomar State Beach and Coast Trail, an easy 2.7 mile walk down a path, to longer and more ambitious routes in the nearby foothills.
