Harmony Headlands state park is truly a hidden gem. About two miles into the hike you will arrive at a breathtaking beach with wonderful views of the hills and landscape. Rated a fairly easy and leisurely hike/walk of only about 4 miles round-trip, this hike is great for everyone!
The park entrance is very easy to find; just off of highway 1 across from a place called Harmony. Harmony is a tiny town with population of less than 20 nestled between the Cambria and Cayucos.
I saw people walking along the bluffs enjoying the view, a person resting by the beach to read and a couple sitting on the bench to have a picnic. There are some benches along the path and everyone seemed very happy and relaxed. It’s a storybook kind of place.
On a clear day the view by the seaside is simply magnificent and mesmerizing. Definitely a trip worth taking at least once in your life.
Montaña de Oro State Park is full of various hiking trails and breathtaking views. You could see the marine life in their own environment and enjoy unspoiled views of nature.
Be careful not to get hit by the waves! Montana de Oro is known for year round swell and heavy currents. This State park really has something for everyone of all ages.
