Pelican Bluffs Trail

In 2017 work began on building a new public trail at MLT’s Pelican Bluffs Preserve. Thanks to funding from the Coastal Conservancy and hard work by staff, interns and volunteers, the trail opened to the public in spring 2018.

Watch this video taken while trail construction was underway:

The 2.2 mile trail guides visitors from the parking lot to a lush grassy field surrounded by trees, a perfect spot for a picnic. From there, the path is enveloped by deep verdant Bishop pine forest before revealing the dramatic coastal landscape. The trail continues over a small bridge and down toward the bluff edge, with dramatic sheer, white cliffs plunging to the sea below. This is a great spot to see the peregrine falcons that nest nearby. From there the trail loops back, this time through the wide coastal prairie, before returning to the parking lot.
