Gaviota Coast Walks

By Phil Mckenna

To All Coastal Walkers,

My wife and I are confirmed walkers and we’ve noticed a large number of people walking in this era of the coronavirus. It’s a healthy habit and very therapeutic in times of stress and uncertainty. In that spirit, I put together three walks you can take on the Gaviota Coast that can be tailored to your own ability and that provide space for social distancing. Mornings are the best time for being about on the Gaviota Coast to avoid the afternoon west winds of springtime.

Clicking on the links will take you to a two-page description of each of the three walks.
