Hiking Inn to Inn
We have been hiking from inn-to-inn along the Southern California Coast. It is a beautiful and wild coastline with rugged, secluded coves, rocky promontories, and classic Southern California beaches. Wildlife abounds – migrating whales, sea birds, seals, porpoises, and sea lions. The rewards are great – charming coastal towns, interesting inns, fine cuisine, and long days spent hiking along and swimming in the wild Pacific.
We plan to publish an inn-to-inn hiking guide for the 218 miles from Leo Carrillo State Beach at the north end of L.A. County to the Mexican border. So far, we have hiked about half of the way.
Do you have any ideas for a Southern California Walkabout that you would like to see in our next book?
how far have you gone for s. ca. route. I was thinking it would be quite possible to start in Imperial Beach, and walk via Coronado (paved bike path) take the ferry to the embarkadero in San Diego, and continue up walkways, sidewalks, then beach walking in Pacific Beach etc. Joanne
I agree that the hike you describe from Imperial Beach north can be done, and that it will be beautiful. We are hiking from inn-to-inn south. We have hiked from Leo Carrillo State Beach in northern LA County to Oceanside. We plan to complete our journey to Imperial Beach and hopefully the border this summer. Then, we plan to publish a Walkabout California guide next spring.
Are you planning to hike north from Imperial Beach? Keep us posted on your journey.
