Hiking and Biking Trails

Over 10 miles of bluff-top, 15 miles of ocean meadows and 20 miles of hillside trails that crisscross at Sea Ranch for both hikers and bikers.  These trails provide panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the rugged coastline, massive rock formations, migrating whales and those amazing California sunsets. For less experienced bike riders you’ll find over 40 miles of paved roadways that have essentially no traffic to cope with and a comprehensive trail system.

Owner and Guide, Margaret Lindgren, offers nature & land tours, and architectural tours with exquisite knowledge and experience for individuals, groups, and corporate events.  Additionally, she is a certified yoga instructor and can offer private classes in conjunction with tours.  Her two and three hour tours range from $50 – $75 per person.
