The Morro Bay Harborwalk has all the beauty you'd expect from a southern California trail: sparkling surf, sandy beaches and rugged cliffs in the distance. But the best sight is unique to the city: Morro Rock, a volcanic formation rising more than 500 feet above the water, and you've got a prime view of it from the trail. Sea lions and sea otters can be seen around the rocky island, as well as peregrine falcons and other types of birds.
From Morro Rock, the trail continues along the bay and passes through Coleman Park, a nice place to picnic and take in the scenery. As you wind your way to trail's end, the three stacks of the city's power plant dominate the skyline. The pathway ends at the doorstep to the Embarcadero, where there are many options for shopping, eating and entertainment.
