Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A wonderful walk along a beautiful section of coast. The trails are relatively easy and the adjacent landscape changes as you go. A true delight. Homes along the road that you take to get to the main trailhead are also quite interesting.

Beautiful coastal preserve with spectacular views and wonderful handmade driftwood benches every so often. Otters and seals abound. Many dog walkers. Really a lovely, lovely place to walk when in Cambria.

We took the coastal trail. This is an easy "hike" with outrageous coastal views. Uncountable number of Pelicans flying, diving, and resting on the ocean waves. So cool to see them up close. There are benches for resting or just communing with nature. Next time I would like to take the forest trail.

Enjoyed a great walk! Began by the ocean then went up into the woods - felt like a different place! Even though it was cloudy it was very enjoyable.

Great views and good weather even in the summer. My Mom easily did the trail with her Rollator walker. Nice benches. Saw a few sea otters.

We just got back from a trip to Cambria, where we visited Fiscalini, as we'd heard it was worth a trip. We were unprepared for the beauty of this place. There were gorgeous flowers in profusion. The juxtaposition of the blooms next to the ocean was incredible. We saw many people walking dogs here. Lucky dogs! There are wonderful oversized benches where you can relax (regular benches, too). People sit by the water, mesmerized by the waves, lost in quiet contemplation of the beauty around and in front of them. We would happily return to Cambria just to take another hike here.

Breathtaking views and great trails. Entrance is free. There are quite a few trails and a good trail map as you enter the Preserve. A number of different entrances as well.

We only did the Forest trail. I was so enthralled with the quantity and variety of mushrooms, I forgot to look up for Monarch butterflies 🦋. Lovely forest walk. Easy trails with good signage.

This is a wonderful preserve. If you want a nice seaside stroll you can keep to the boardwalk near the ocean. Sometimes it is windy. It is always beautiful. If you want a hike, take the seaside trail and then make your way up the hill into the woods. It is vey magical there. We have run into deer that last two times and there are other surprises too. Stay on the trails as there is a lot of poison oak. In the wet season some of the ravines are pretty wet so some good boots can come in handy. The trails are not well marked, but you can find your way around easily enough from the views. There is no way you could get truly lost, because you have Highway 1, the ocean, and two neighborhoods surrounding the preserve.

Great area for hiking with trails with something for all. We were lucky in that one of the trailheads was the front yard of the house we were renting. This took the hiker into the more wooded area and a little more challenging for older less experienced hikes. There was also a sign to take a bell in case of bears that made a few in the group a little nervous. However, lower near the beach there is parking and more level and easier paths to traverse. Parking is on the north and south ocean ends of the preserve. There are benchs through out the paths for small breaks or to take in the beauty of the area. Weather was great, lots of sun. Can't go wrong with this area for a little exercise and communing with nature. Best part - no charge!
