The Adventure Continues… San Simeon
Huell has revisited the Central California coast quite a few times, and especially the area around Hearst Castle — but this part of San Luis Obispo County has so much to offer and it never seems to get old. After watching this episode of California’s Golden Parks I’m thinking that maybe in between trips to the northern coastal counties I should find time to explore a bit further south — and Hearst San Simeon State Park seems like a very special jewel in the state parks system.
The Hearst Ranch began with the first purchase of land by George Hearst in 1865 and is the largest privately owned working cattle ranch on the California coast. Now, through a historic conservation plan, at least 18 miles of coastline including close to 1,500 acres will be available for use by all Californians.
Huell hears about the future of the ranch, and how all Californians will be able to enjoy its scenic vistas and learn about this critical wildlife habitat.
