Hiking San Miguel Island
Several trails traverse San Miguel Island providing visitors with spectacular hiking opportunities. While many parts of the island are closed to protect wildlife, fragile plants, and geological features, several areas are open for you to explore. Some of these areas are open to you only when accompanied by a park ranger. On your own you may explore Cuyler Harbor beach, Cabrillo monument, and the Lester ranch site.
