What To Do

There are many fun things to do while visiting our beautiful stretch of coastline.  

  • Ano Nuevo State Park
    One quarter mile south of Green Oaks is Ano Nuevo State Park where you can hike along sand dunes to see elephant seals and stroll along a spectacular beach.  In fact, there are several pull offs on our stretch of coast that lead to beautiful beaches: just pick one and try it.  
  • Big Basin State Park
    Five minutes to the south of Green Oaks is Big Basin State Park where you'll find such marvels as Waddell Beach, a salt marsh, and the Skyline To The Sea Trail that leads hikers through redwoods to magnificent Berry Falls and beyond.
  • Butano State Park
    Twenty minutes to the north of Green Oaks is Butano State Park where you'll find hiking trails through towering redwoods.

  • Pigeon Point Lighthouse Youth Hostel
    Ten minutes north of Green Oaks is the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Youth Hostel.  The intertidal zone that is a short walk north of the lighthouse has phenomenal tidepooling at low tide. 

  • Pescadero
    The quaint town of Pescadero, a twenty minute drive to the north of Green Oaks, has fun shops that are open on the weekends and are full of local creations such as art and furniture.  Harley Farms offers tastes of their award winning goat cheeses.
