A nice loop from Oak Grove Trail along coastal bluffs and through the woods of Douglas Family Preserve.

Description

From the Arroyo Burro Beach parking lot located off of Cliff Drive, follow the Oak Grove Trail up the north side of the Arroyo Burro Estuary. Then, cross over Mesa Creek on a bridge before briefly climbing up to the top of the bluff to connect to the Douglas Trail. Once you're at the top of the bluffs, stay to the right and follow the wide, dirt path as it bends to the west and then as it moves down the coast over the sea-side cliffs.

This length of the run along the cliffs offers amazing coastal views. You'll eventually reach a junction - going right on the short Douglas Spur Trail will take you to Medcliff Road. Taking a left will bring you north and then east to complete a loop of Douglas Family Preserve.

Many exotic plants can be found throughout the Douglas Family Preserve that were left behind by tan old nursery that was once present on the land.
