Description

Start this trail by running up the coast from the Arroyo Burro County Park. Along this portion of the trail there was once a Chumash village, and archeological digs have discovered a plethora of artifacts. There are also tide pools along the trail during low-tide periods that showcase numerous sea creatures.

After roughly 2 miles of running along the beach, the trail will bend slightly and you'll pass the Hope Ranch Beach Club. Soon you'll come across the peaceful More Mesa Beach, which is relatively isolated compared to other beaches in the area. There is a particularly rocky point on the upper part of More Mesa Beach that marks the end of the Arroyo Burro Trail.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

Hermit crabs and sea stars can be found in the tide pools.
