“San Clemente Beach Trail is Great”

San Clemente Coastal Trail
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 March 2014

You can walk north and south along the coastline from one end of San Clemente to the other. Great views of the ocean and beach. The San Clemente Pier is right in the middle just west of the Beach Trail. I walk this Beach Trail six times a week. Be sure to check it out.

We started from the Califa beach and went to the pier with my 7 year old daughter. We grabbed a snack for her and walked back. It was great. Very busy today compare to other times we have been on this trail, probably the 78 degrees in January got everyone out on the trail.

The San Clemente Coastal Trail is a scenic coastal walk featuring the Pacific Ocean on one side and the cliffs of San Clemente on the other. We start at the historic San Clemente train station and walk south to San Clemente State Beach, about 2 1/2 miles away. In between you are treated to views of Catalina Island, the occasional train, the San Clemente Pier and all of the people watching you could hope for. We usually include walking the pier in our trail walk, but if you like you can stop half way and enjoy Fisherman's on the pier. Be sure to check-out Ole Hanson's home just south of the pier on the bluff. Don't forget to watch a little beach volleyball or surfing along the way. This time of year the dolphins are swimming and put on quite a show. If you like, you can go a little farther south on the beach (past the south end of the trail) and see where Nixon's Western White House was located.

I love running or walking this trail. Add the pier and its 5 miles. I always say if I lived here, I would run this every day. Amazing views....
