Camino Cielo Road, which runs east-west along the ridge. Each
of these trails starts from the road and continues along the ocean
side or inland side of the mountain.

along the beach while others are on the top of beachside bluffs. Some
of the beach trails can be inaccessible during high tide or your
return trip can be cutoff during high tide.
