National Trails Day – Repost from The Mommy-Files

National Trails Day is Saturday, June 4th! It’s the perfect excuse to get outside and hike one of the many winding trails within Fiscalini Ranch. Adventurers will love the easily-accessible tide pools, and families with small children will appreciate the “well-manicured pathways,” as described by The Mommy-Files, an awesome blog whose writer took a hike through Fiscalini Ranch last Christmas. The weather is certainly warmer now, but the views are just as breathtaking. Don’t forget to share your photos with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the chance to be featured!

The Mommy-Files adventure begins here:

For those of you who know me, I am always up for a hike, with Russel it usually takes a bit more convincing. So when we headed out, it wasn’t with the anticipation of finding a hike. We just happened upon one. Taking a drive up Hwy 1, we came to Cambria, which is a lovely coastal town. We followed signs to the beach and found ourselves at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. Nice wide-open spaces with neatly manicured pathways. We saw couples with strollers, young kids riding bikes with their parents, the elderly out on a stroll – all age groups.

Highway Closures

Highway 1 Closure

If you're heading to the Central Coast, be sure to be mindful of the stretch of Highway 1, 21 miles north of Cambria. Caltrans is busy with a major construction project to make traveling along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway a safer journey.

Highway 1 Storm Repair Along the Big Sur Coast Due to multiple active slides, State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and just south of Nepenthe (Mon 44).

Worried about Highway 1 Road Closures? Cambria and Hearst Castle are easily accessible from Highway 46 West from 101 South of Paso Robles or from northbound Highway 1 from the city of San Luis Obispo. Travelers from the north can easily take Highway 101 as an alternate route to Highway 1, which reduces travel time to Cambria by about 25 minutes.
