Excellent views of Lake Nacimiento and Santa Lucia Mountains just minutes from the heart of the Paso Robles wine country.

The Shoreline Trail on Lake Nacimiento near Paso Robles, CA is a 5.6 mile trail used for hiking and trail running and located near Lake Nacimiento Resort.

To get there, from Highway 101 take the 24th street exit in Paso Robles west till it turns into Lake Nacimiento Drive. Lake Nacimiento Drive will eventually turn into Godfrey Road and then back into Nacimiento Drive. 

Just before the road crosses the damn, go left on Heritage Drive and follow it down until it dead-ends in the parking lot behind the ranger station. The trail begins on the southwest side of the parking lot.

Maps are available at the ranger station and at any of the resort offices. There is a small market past the parking lot where food and beverages can be purchased.

Trail DOES NOT EXIST!

No one I asked at the resort knew abut this trail and it was not shown on the map. There is a trail for about 100 yards but then disappears and there are some other trails leading down to the water from different locations but none that shirt the shoreline for a 5.6 out and back. And definitely not for trail running like it says in the description.
