Hiking the Ocean Trail Reserve to Abalone Cove | Palos Verdes Nature Preserve, CA

Standard
Ocean Trail Reserve

The Ocean Trails Ecological Reserve is part of the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve. There are 54-acre park just waiting to be explored! We follow a trail through the shoreline to Abalone Cove.

The trailhead is located at W 25th St Rd. Different paths take you to the edge of the cliff, connecting with Catalina Trail. It is a pathway adjacent to Trump National Golf Course along the cliff side with various paths also leading down to the rocky shore below. After reaching the end of the beach you will see a dirt road that takes you up the hillside, this is Dudleya Trail.

Now, the Catalina Trail continues until it reaches Rancho Palos Verdes Beach. It is an approximately a mile and a half of rocky and sandy beach located beneath Trump National Golf Course. Continue walking north to a private beach at Portuguese Bend Beach Club.

❗ Anyone can walk the beach in front of the club. Just stay back from the private facilities.

The route along Portuguese Bend Cove Beach is rocky and narrow. Close to Inspiration Point, you can hike up the Archery Coastal Trail to reach the highway (Palos Verdes Drive South). Turn left and walk carefully along the side of the road to find the path that puts you out into Abalone Cove.

The tide pools at Abalone Cove allow visitors to see a wide variety of marine life. 馃悷馃悮馃悪
