Nature Preserve: Bike, Birding, Hike, Picnic, Walk
Moore Creek Preserve is open to the public. This 246-acre City greenbelt land offers hiking trails through open meadows with scenic views of the Monterey Bay. Because of the sensitive resources within the Preserve, public use is limited to hiking only. Bicycles and dogs are prohibited at all times. Cattle are grazed on the Preserve to benefit native plant and animal species and to reduce the fire hazard.
