HIKES/WALKS: ORANGE COUNTY: NORTH BEACH TRAIL

 

One of our favorite things to do year round is head to the North Beach Trail in San Clemente and walk down to the pier.  The trail is actually a 2.3 mile trail that runs between North Beach and Calafia…so if you want a longer walk you can do it.  The kids can only make it to the pier and back, about a mile each way, so that’s our usual route.  It’s a beautiful and easy walk (or ride! you can bring your bike) right along the ocean.

The trains run by every so often and the kids get a kick out of watching them and waving to the passengers.  Dolphins are a common sight near sunset and it’s always fun to watch the surfers from the pier.  North Beach has a big parking lot and it’s never been a problem for us to find a spot.  Normal beach parking meter rates apply ($1.50 and hour) and the machines take credit cards.  If you’re looking for a fun family activity, this is it!:)  The trail is bike, scooter and stroller (joggers are best) friendly.  For more info check out their website here: North Beach Trail
