Except for the three designated lateral trails to the ocean through private Sea Ranch property secured after the passage of Proposition 20 in 1972, this section of the CCT courses along Highway 1. Past the Sea Ranch subdivision, large private ranches surround the highway and trail, but ocean vistas are plentiful and on occasion you might be joined on the other side of the highway fence by a curious llama or cow.
