Fiscalini Ranch Preserve is home to a number of endangered species and species of special concern, offering a wonderful display of nature’s diversity. The Ranch is bordered by a riparian habitat that encompasses tidal effect zones, seasonal freshwater marshes, and wetlands dotted with birds. The most outstanding natural feature is the dramatic ocean bluff that runs more than a mile along the shoreline of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary where you can view migrating whales, elephant seals, and other ocean mammals. The Ranch features eight trail entrances that meander through 437 acres of protected forest, riparian habitat, and grasslands. Springtime offers an abundance of wildflowers. The benches located along the trails are each unique pieces of art that offer stunning ocean views.
