If your looking for a nice place to walk or just want some jaw dropping views, go check out the Headlands of Dana Point. Trails intertwine on the top of the Cliffs that look down onto the harbor and offer you the chance to make the journey all the way around the Headland and end up at Strands beach scenic walking trail. A local favorite would be to start at the bottom of Violet Lantern St. and then make your way north on a nice and flat trail that looks over the back of the harbor. Development of the Headlands project site was carefully planned to enhance the public coastal access, preserve the coastal bluffs and give the locals a chance to go out and see how much Dana Point actually sticks out into the Pacific!
The Dana Point Headlands Conservation Area contains over 150 species of plants and animals that are native to coastal Southern California. The unique setting and mix of habitats on the Headlands also provides a home for rare and threatened plants and animals. Check it out!
